State Rep. defends beer tax proposal

Rep. Terese Berceau, D-Madison, proposed a new beer tax which would add another 2.4 cents per bottle of beer purchased, a measure some lawmakers say will help lower the instances of drunken driving in the state. Rep. Berceau and New Glarus Brewery owner Deb Carey joined Here & Now to discuss this bill, which is now meeting resistance throughout the state.
