Governor Jennifer Granholm has signed a bill that would allow retailers to sell liquor above the state-set price. From the Detroit News,

“We do not believe this will lead to price gouging,” Granholm spokeswoman Liz Boyd said. “There is no guarantee that we’re even going to see prices increase.”

Groups that represent retailers who sell liquor have said they don’t expect noticeable increases because competition will make retailers keep their prices near the state-set minimum.

The first reader to pay more than the state-mandated minimum for booze will get a gold star.
