Status of Local Authority to Regulate Alcohol Outlet Density
Update of state data and coding
ChangeLab Solutions conducted legal research to update the status of state laws preempting local regulation of alcohol outlet density in the 50 states, as reported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in the 2013 Prevention Status Reports (PSRs) on Excessive Alcohol Use.
The Status of Local Authority to Regulate Alcohol Outlet Density reviews the extent to which states grant local governments authority to regulate alcohol outlet density, and identifies changes to these laws between January 2, 2013, when the last review was completed, and January 1, 2014.
