CELEBRATE!!! DUMB CARD DEAL ON FELONS SERVING KANSAS CITY LIQUOR!!!
More on this later but for now the most important thing to know is that the so-called "dumb card" employment tax remains mostly unchanged.
As with all things, nobody is happy after this compromise which means it's probably a good one.
Fox4: New KC City Council ordinance allows some ex-felons to serve liquor more easily
Under the revised ordinance, people convicted of violent crimes like murder, kidnapping, child molestation and rape will be banned for life. Others that have served time for offenses such as robbery, armed criminal action, sexual exploitation of a minor and domestic assault will face a five year waiting period.
People convicted of drug offenses will no longer have to wait to get a liquor card.
City Councilman Scott Taylor said the new ordinance would allow some ex-offenders to get work more easily, while addressing the safety of bar patrons.
“This is a compromise that puts in place restrictions on those that have the committed the most serious felonies so they can’t come out immediately and start serving alcohol at bars,” he said.
The ordinance also does away with permit requirements for employees selling packaged liquor in stores.
Does this make buying booze in Kansas City safer and/or more equitable???
You decide . . .
