Washington, D.C. – (Great Lakes Radio News) – U.S. Senator Gary Peters has cosponsored bipartisan legislation supporting the craft beverage industry.
Peters says the Craft Beverage Modernization and Tax Reform Act reduces excise taxes and compliance regulations for brewers, cider makers, vintners, and distillers.
Peters says Michigan is home to makers of some of the best brews, wines, and spirits in the country.
He says the bill will strengthen the economy, stimulate tourism, support Michigan agriculture, and boost job creation.
Peters discussed the legislation locally while touring the Blackrocks Brewery in Marquette earlier this month.
