Committee Against Repeal of the Alcohol Tax Regional Campaign Field Meetings Start July 19

At November 2nd's state election, the liquor industry will ask Massachusetts voters to repeal the sales tax on alcohol. This sales tax provides dedicated funding for substance abuse prevention, treatment and recovery services. Passage of the question would jeopardize funding of these programs.
