This association, the MMBA, controls liquor sales in Minnesota, which creates a business monopoly for certain liquor stores, and allows, legally, through oppressive law, the squandering of our local economy, which also inhibits the ability for millions of Minnesotans to vote with their dollar.
We pay taxes seven days a week, why can’t we vote with our dollar seven days a week?
What the MMBA does is pay legislators to take competition out of liquor sales in Minnesota, enabling them to control the market- essentially creating a business monopoly for specific corporations, while restricting others. This monopoly makes it easy for those few to make a profit, while limiting and sanctioning newcomers, and those willing to work throughout the week (specifically on Sunday).
“Each year, Minnesota’s municipal beverage facilities generate approximately $300 million in sales and contribute approximately $20 million in net-profits to various city funds.” -MMBA
What does “various city funds” mean? Is that a euphemism for Legislators? Or payment for the creation, and survival of laws which benefit the companies donating the funds?
Minnesota legislators are controlled by money not voter interest. Put Sunday Sales on the ballot and see where Minnesotans really stand on their issues.

Be sure to thank them for limiting your freedoms, and promoting, ironically, big government control over the citizens of Minnesota.
