MADISON, Wis. (WLAX/WEAU) – The Republican-controlled Legislature passed a measure today (11/14/23) to overhaul the State’s Liquor Laws and create new regulations for Wedding Barns. The measure passed in a 2111 vote and would create a new division within the State Department of Revenue to oversee and enforce liquor laws. It would also require special event venues, known generally as Wedding Barns, to either limit the number of times they serve alcohol in a year or obtain a liquor license. The bill now goes to Democratic Governor Evers.
