Both motions fail on later liquor hours

Rep. Joyce Broadsword's's motion fund the state Liquor Division budget for next year without Rep. George Eskridge's move to leave out funds to open later hours - a $455,000 expenditure expected to bring in a $2 million return - has failed on a 10-10 tied vote. Then, Eskridge's motion died on a 9-11 vote.

The committee has now agreed by unanimous consent to hold off one day on setting the Liquor Division's budget.
