BOISE (AP) — Idaho liquor sales are up. State Liquor Division Director Jeff Anderson says sales of distilled spirits in fiscal year 2014 that ended in July went up 4.8 percent over the previous year. The Spokesman-Review reports that Anderson told lawmakers on the Joint Finance-Appropriations Committee that proceeds reached $63 million. Anderson attributes 7 percent of the increase to Washington state residents driving across the border to buy cheaper booze. In 2011, Washington state voters privatized their state liquor sales system and added taxes that increased the cost.
