New rate for military liquor stores has Cut mrw funds Pentagon says by Norman Black a military writer Washington a decision by Congress to require military liquor stores to Purchase alcohol locally has caused a dramatic increase m operating costs and a. Loss of profits used far recreation for service personnel and their families Pentagon officials say. The Taw also is eliminating competitive bidding at a time when the defense department is being castigated for its procurement policies and allowing stale governments to tax uie Federal government indirectly the officials maintain. Lobbyist for alcohol wholesalers and distributors who played a key role in securing passage of the Law counter the Pentagon has t lived with the Law Long enough to make such an assessment. They also claim congressional intervention was necessary because the defense depart ment was embarking on a plan that would have wiped out the wholesale system in this country.1 the fight Between the Pentagon and alcohol Industry is drawing state governors into the fray and is once again attracting congressional attention. Although the Law will expire sept. 30 unless resurrected the Senate armed services committee voted Liis month to repeal it immediately. And a ranking member of the House armed serv ices committee rep. Dan Daniel d-va., vowed to pursue a similar step. The Law wag passed through the efforts of rep. Thomas d. Dclay a Texas and sen. Mark Andrews , during House debate Dclay described the proposal As a minor fair Market adjustment thai was needed because there it no Public policy reason for alcoholic beverages to find their Way into the civilian marketplace at prices cheaper than local merchants can provide the Law is just like directing that Alt military air plane parti used in California should be purchased in califor Nia said a top Senate staff official who asked not to be named it s just bad policy and totally contrary to what the Congress is mandating for the Pentagon everywhere else. It says pay the highest Price " the official said but John Chwat lobbyist for the coalition on alcoholic beverage procurement an Industry group said it was too Early to reach any conclusions on pricing. Our initial monitoring is not finding the High Price that the Pentagon is throwing around an Capitol Hill. We would obviously not accept that premise of higher prices Chwat said this week. Military stores Selling liquor and wine Are not supported by taxpayer funds. They Are built operated and maintained using the revenues they generate with profits going to morale welfare and recreation or mar programs such As youth centers athletic facilities child care centers libraries and Hobby shops although precise tabulations Are not available for fiscal 1985, the stores produced sales of about 1430 million and profits of about $82 million of which half went to mar programs. It. Col. Pete Bender of the Pentagon s manpower office acknowledges the new system of in state liquor buying was implemented in january. Nonetheless he says the Penta gon has enough evidence to show tic Law is hurting the system and in the process service personnel. The Cost to the stores of procuring alcohol has jumped As much As 179 percent n West Virginia and 45 percent or More in other states such As Nevada North Dakota Oregon South Dakota and Wisconsin Bender says. While the increases in other states Are much smaller Here ii no state in which military installations have reported a de Cline in prices. Based on the initial statistics assistant defense Secretary Chapman pm recently informed Congress it appear the mar programs will face a Rossof 122 million ibis year. Raising retail prices would eliminate the Small discount that now exists and Send military personnel la retail stores off base further depressing sales said Bender according to Chwat the Industry fought for the Law lost year to Block creation of a centralizes buying operation that would have effectively wiped out the wholesale system in this the old system had seemed to be working of he added. In making its Case the Industry has pointedly reminded governors that wholesalers pay taxes. Schwai says hit group bos the support of 27 governors. While it is Well established that slates cannot directly tax the Federal government Many of the governors Are arguing they have the right to insist on purchases through wholesalers under the list amendment to the Constitution which delegates to states the authority to regulate the importation of spirits 1 airman killed 4 Hurt when car hits tree Hahn a Germany one airman was killed and four received minor injuries when their car left Highway 5-32? and i Nick a tree at 4 .
