FAIRBANKS (AP) -- An Anchorage state representative has introduced a bill that would allow the state to seize vehicles used to smuggle liquor into dry communities.
The bill by Rep. Bob Lynn, R-Anchorage, would allow for the forfeiture of aircraft, vehicles or vessels used to transport liquor in violation of local option laws.
Alaska law already allows for forfeiture of vehicles, aircraft and vessels used in violating some types of liquor laws. Lynn's bill would extend that authority to violations of the local option laws that allow some villages to be alcohol-free.
Lynn's bill was co-sponsored by Reps. Eric Croft, Sharon Cissna, and Harry Crawford, all Anchorage Democrats.
