Study: Liquor privatization hasn’t resulted in rise in DUI arrests, as some feared
SEATTLE -- The raw data on alcohol-related arrests came from the Washington State Patrol -- and it shows they are declining. The results were extrapolated by The Washington Policy Center, an independent, nonpartisan think tank. "When the initiative (to privatize liquor sales) was being debated, I think there was some scare tactics being used with the public,” said Paul Guppy with The Washington Policy Center.
