Bill would prohibit new liquor at Whiteclay
Facebook Twitter Email

Nebraska Sen. Don Preister of Omaha has introduced a bill that would prohibit the issuance of new liquor licenses within a five-mile radius of any reservation that bans alcohol.

The bill is aimed at the border town of Whiteclay, which caters largely to residents of the nearby Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. The reservation has an alcohol ban.

Preister's bill would not revoke the licenses of four beer establishments in Whiteclay. If an existing store loses its licenses, it could be denied a new one.
