Excerpt from Alcoholic Beverage Taxation: Report to the 1983 General Assembly of North Carolina
The Legislative Research Commission's Study Committee on Alcoholic Beverage Taxation met six times. At its first meeting on February 17, 1982, Lynn Gunn, Staff Director, Mental Health Study Commission, addressed the committee.
She stated that the Commission had looked at the disburse ment of ABC revenue but decided its authorizing legislation prohibited it from making recommendations regarding the applicable laws. Therefore, that Commission recommended that the Legislative Research Commission study the subject.
The committee also heard from James Emmert, Director, Charlotte Alcohol Treatment Center, speaking for the North Carolina Coalition of Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Groups. He estimated that alcoholism and drug abuse cost North Carolina over each year. He stated that the system of community recovery programs he represents can help in the rehabilitation of these people, but funds are needed to sup port these programs. Emmert thought that these funds should be provided through taxes on alcoholic beverages that those who drink should support recovery efforts on a pay as-you - go basis.
