Drinks & Taxes 2009 v13: Delaware

Delaware Gov. Jack Markell wants to close the state's budget gap by increasing the tax on alcohol by 50 percent.

The higher taxes would raise about $6 million that Gov. Markell says the state needs. The price of a six pack of beer would increase about a nickel.

A bill to increase the tax on alcohol died in the Delaware General Assembly last year.
