lobby: Hold private events after Eversí decision
MADISON ó Wisconsinís
powerful tavern lobby wants bars to hold events without liquor
licenses after Gov. Tony Evers said wedding barns donít need
The Tavern League of Wisconsin told members Tuesday to set up rooms
or space in vacant buildings for private events. Groups holding the
events could buy alcohol from the bar, which wouldnít have to follow
regulations governing licensed establishments.
The league wants wedding barns to obtain licenses like taverns.
Former Attorney General Brad Schimel said in November private events
in public spaces need liquor licenses. Conservative law firm
Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty has sued to ensure wedding
barns are exempted.
