Washington Residents Vote to Privatize Liquor Sales Today

Washington state voters will vote today to end the state-run liquor system and allow independent stores to sell liquor.

The Seattle Times reports that Costco Wholesale recently dumped another $8.9 million into its liquor privatization initiative, bringing its total contributions to I-1183 to more than $22 million, according to the Public Disclosure Commission.

The campaign opposing I-1183 has raised $11.7 million in cash and in-kind contributions, mostly from wine and liquor distributors.

Last year, Costco contributed $4.8 million to the campaign for I-1100, which also sought to privatize the state’s liquor business and deregulate the system in a way that alcohol distributors don’t like.
