Voters look like they will face an historic decision this fall. Two initiatives, 1100 and 1105, would both get the state out of the business of selling liquor by the bottle. Currently the state government is the only retailer and distributor of liquor in Washington. Both these measures would allow privately owned stores to sell liquor and would also allow private wholesalers to distribute liquor. The state's role would be reduced to regulation and taxation. Tell us what you think. Should the state get out of the business of selling and distributing liquor?
