OKLAHOMA – Oklahoma is seeing the payoff from the alcohol industry after a law change last year.
The Alcoholic Beverage Law Enforcement Commission or ABLE, says the state has seen about $13.7 million in tax revenue.
That compared to 2018 when the commission reported about $9.5 million or 2017 when they saw $7.5 million.
The rise in revenue is directly related to certain businesses being able to sell beer and wine with a higher alcohol content.
Most of that funding will go towards Oklahoma’s general revenue fund.
