"This will cost jobs in our industry— including those of small business owners, servers and bartenders like you who are the lifeblood of our economy. We need your personal involvement and help“

Thank you

"Backers also said it's time for the industry to bear more of the costs it imposes on society -- including drunken driving accidents, alcoholism and other problems."

Yea right. Those costs would end up being put onto the consumer. I swear no wonder this country is going to sh**.

Get Beall out of office as quickly as possible. Find something on the guy and get a recall campaign started to put the hook on him and get him out of Sacramento. The guy is an attack dog whose target are the people who voted him into office. He is pond scum.

In order to raise revenues for the state, here is where fees should be imposed:

on every submission to state environmental agencies made by the Sierra Club, ARC Ecology, the World Wildlife Fund, and all the other environmental organizations that have put a stranglehold on the state of California and its people for decades. It is time they PAY UP--$500 fee for each document they submit, whether it be electronically or hardcopy paper. If those in state government with knowledge of how much material is submitted to the state by these outfits, they will realize they could possibly BALANCE THE BUDGET with these environmental fees alone!

It's time that the free ride for environmentalists be put to an end.
