Marc Sorini was quoted on August 13-15 in various articles and broadcasts such as the Associated Press, The Los Angeles Times, The Miami Herald, and CBS13 etc. covering a California Board of Equalization vote on the taxation of flavored malt beverage products in an attempt to control underage drinking. Mr. Sorini represents malt beverage producers & distributors in these proceedings, where malt beverages are treated as distilled spirits as opposed to beer. "What we're talking about here...are social policy issues, certainly not something one would expect the tax board to be leading policy-making on. This is something frankly the Legislature out to be doing," Mr. Sorini said.
