GOVERNMENT AND POLITICAL ROUNDUP: Assembly Democrat wants to ban the sale of high-proof alcohol
A Wisconsin Assembly Democrat wants to ban the sale of high-proof alcohol. Madison Representative Terese Berceau is working on a bill to prohibit liquor stores from selling booze that's more than 160-proof. She tells WISC TV that the only purpose of such alcohol is to get people quote, "stupidly drunk." Berceau said she proposed the measure after learning that a person in Milwaukee drowned after drinking high-proof Ever-clear, along with the Red Bull energy drink and Gatorade.
