Risser defended the $8-a-barrel increase, noting it would do little but index the beer tax for inflation since its last increase 38 years ago.

I love the part about how the money raised will go into a segregated fund to help fund alcohol treatment and alcohol related law enforcement. Sure, it will just like the funds from the tobacco lawsuit (which was also another bad idea). Heaven forbid Wisconsin have the lowest taxes in the nation in one area, why we must be #1!

What really shocks me is we have yet to hear how this is for the children!
