Illinois General Assembly Passes Bill to Amend Liquor Control Act of 1934


The SBAC lead the charge to pass SB2436, a bill to amend the outdated Liquor Control Act, which prohibits the sale of alcohol within 100 feet of a religious institution, school, hospital or military station. Until now, the only recourse for a small business owner to receive an exemption was for a bill to be drafted, passed by the General Assembly and signed into law. Most small business owners don’t have the time or resources to tackle this burdensome process. SB2436 will now be sent to the Governor’s desk.
