TEN aiASON cay DECEMBER 12 1933 LOCAL OPTION FOR IOWA BILL Feature of Liquor Act Will Meet Opposition in Both Houses, DBS ; MOINES, Dec. 12. --A. local option provision will be embodied in the proposed liquor control bill, it was learned today. The local option feature will be confined to municipalities and is expected to find considerable opposition on the floor of both the senate and house, if this angle remains in the measure after it has run the gamut of scrutiny in the liquor control committees of both branches. Another feature of the tentative bill which is In the final throes of drafting is the incorporation of the Ontario system whereby vtaeyard- ists would be allowed to manufacture and sell wine. Proponents of this provision point out that it would provide an outlet for Iowa grown grapes which number 6,624 tons this year. Permit Sale of Mead. Members who favor such use o£ Iowa grapes also say that it would permit sale of mead, a drink of the middle ages of which honey la a large part. Sale of Hquor of high alcoholic content by the glass or drink will be barred, but sale of wine Is to be permitted in hotels and restaurants under the suggested measure. The hard liquors will be sold for consumption off the premises. To meet certain legal obstacles, Jt is said the state control commission will be aKowed to fix the margin of profit. It originally had been suggested that this be limited to 10 per cent net, with a maximum of 40 per cent gross profit. Should Be Cheap. Members of both senate and house committees agree that the liquor should be sold at as low coat to the consumer as possible as the most practical method by which to eliminate the bootlegger. The bill a!so carries a provision for a 51,000,000 revolving- fund to be used in financing the setup. Part of this money may be borrowed from the general fund. Care also has been taken to avoid a infringement on a recent supreme court decision holding that the legislative powers cannot be delegated to state board, commission and other agencies. For that reason the powers and duties of the proposed control board are set forth in considerable detail.
