Recently, Costco attempted to go around the legislative process and tried to circumvent a veto that Governor Rick Scott implemented in 2017 saving hundreds of Florida small businesses and thousands of Florida jobs.
Costco was trying to convert the liquor license from package only to consumption on-premise through the Florida Department of Business & Professional Regulation.
Thanks to your efforts in alerting Governor Scott to this scheme that was taking place, Costco's license was denied.
Please take the time to thank Governor Scott for once again saving Florida's hundreds of Florida small businesses and thousands of Florida jobs by denying a liquor license to Costco.
We appreciate your participation to help ensure we keep Florida grocery stores, as well as liquor stores, small independents and established chains, operating properly and competition fairly under current Florida law in order to keep the jobs that we all rely on.
