Liquor Licensing Update - Chairman Deloney Visits Clark Hill
On August 23, 2012, Chairman Andrew Deloney of the Michigan Liquor Control Commission met with a large group of interested people at Clark Hill's Birmingham office to go over major changes at the Liquor Control Commission. Chairman Deloney provided a candid look at the Liquor Control Commission's licensing processes and improvements that are coming. He graciously responded to questions from those in attendance. Highlights include:
- Chairman Deloney's mission is to root out unnecessary licensing delays and eliminate them.
- By eliminating unnecessary and duplicative requirements, the Commission is shortening the time it takes to obtain a license.
- The Commission should be run according to the statutory and regulatory requirements in a transparent way, so that the regulated community has certainty in its dealings.
- Chairman Deloney views the Office of Regulatory Reinvention Report as a helpful guideline for change, rather than a checklist. He is working with the Legislature and other stakeholders to prioritize and implement recommendations.
