From the West Alabama Newsroom--  The cost of hard liquor could be going up in Dallas County if a bill in the legislature becomes law.

The proposed bill would increase the sales tax on hard liquor by five percent.

Seventy-five percent of the revenue generated would be used to help support the county drug court program. The remainder would go to support the District Attorney's office.

"Most of the people that we have in our drug court are good people, they just had a bad problem," said Dallas County District Judge Bob Armstrong.

W.C. Rogers owns a liquor store in Dallas County. "If I could stop it, I probably would," said Rogers. 

"I don't see where it's going to affect, business still going to go on."
