Battle brewing over ABC board's regulation in Alaska

A fierce battle is brewing in Juneau over alcohol regulation. One side, led by the bar, liquor store and restaurant lobby, says the Alcoholic Beverage Control Board is consumed by its police role and treats businesses selling alcohol like criminal organizations. The other side includes public health officials and law enforcement, who oppose what they see as a weakening of the ABC Board's capabilities.
