Senator Turner Hoping To Expand Liquor Delivery

Liquor delivery services would expand under a new measure from State Senator Doris Turner that passed the Senate on Monday.  Senator Turner says bars and restaurants are the backbone of communities and they bring a uniqueness to the neighborhood.  “We are continuously working to strengthen our local economies, and expanding liquor delivery services is a great way to do that.”


Senate Bill 1001 would eliminate state and local fees for liquor delivery throughout Illinois.  Additionally, it brings parity for liquor delivery between home-rule and non-home rule municipalities to regulate liquor delivery. 


The Turner-backed measure would lower licensing fees for wineries to $750 if renewed online and $900 for initial or non-online certification.  Under a law passed in 2021, the fees were raised to $1,200 if renewed online and $1,500 for initial licenses and non-online.  Senator Turner says it’s a win-win for all. 


Senate Bill 1001 passed the Senate with bipartisan support.
