JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) – A Soldotna state senator is expected to again push for reforms in Alaska’s alcohol laws when the legislature convenes.

The Juneau Empire reports Republican Peter Micciche in 2014 introduced legislation to make changes. The issue is expected to come up again in 2017.

The Alaska Alcoholic Beverage Control Board and interested parties since 2012 have worked to redraft statutes that regulate alcoholic beverages.

Board chairman Bob Klein says alcohol statutes have not been revised in 36 years and the board wants to update them for the new millennium.

Micciche in 2015 took parts of a revision bill and put them into a proposal that became law.

But some elements remain to be addressed, such as new kinds of licenses and changes in fees and penalties.
