North Dakota Alcohol Tax Increase Initiative may appear on the 2010 statewide ballot in North Dakota. The proposed initiative calls for increasing the state tax on wine, beer and liquor.[1] The revenue would be dedicated to paying for alcohol education and prevention. The initiative was sponsored by Duane Peterson. "We feel that local coalitions, local organizations and schools are lacking the funding in order to properly educate the kids. We feel that this would really help out," said Peterson. Preliminary estimates by supporters estimate that the tax increase would generate approximately $2 million.[2]

Path to the ballot

In order to place the proposed measure on the ballot supporters are required to collect a minimum of 12,844 valid signatures from North Dakota voters.[1]
