Name: Alcoholic Liquor Legislative Commission - RG 534


Historical Note: The Alcoholic Liquor Legislative Commission was created in 1955. Its duties included the study and investigation of matters relating to the sale and consumption of alcoholic beverages in Illinois, determining the effectiveness of existing state and local liquor laws and regulations, investigating relationships between liquor traffic and crime, and submitting a report of their findings to the General Assembly. The commission was authorized to conduct investigations, subpoena witnesses, request cooperation with other state agencies in preparing their study, and compel the production of research reports and data. It was composed of five members of the Senate, appointed by the Committee on Committees or its chairman; five members of the House, appointed by the Speaker; and five members appointed by the Governor (L. 1955, pp. 1283-1284). In 1957, the commission’s life was extended to April 1959, at which time it completed its work and submitted its final report to the General Assembly (L. 1957, pp. 1664-1666).
