Memorandum filed with Assembly bill No. 1022, introduced by Mr. Rogers, entitled “An Act to amend the liquor tax law, relative to the sale of liquor on election days”—Not approved

This bill is to amend the liquor tax law relative to the sale of liquor on election days. It provides “except that the prohibition of this subdivision does not apply as against the holder of a liquor tax certificate at an election in cities of the third class where only tax payers or property owners or both are voters, not to an election in cities of the third class for city officers not required by law to be elected at a general city election”. The general provision of the statute prohibiting the sale of liquor upon general election days is one which has met with the approval of all people in this State; and no exception should be made save for unanswerable reasons.
