Liquor Control Commission November Underage Compliance Report

SPRINGFIELD – In November the Illinois Liquor Control Commission (ILCC) conducted compliance checks around the state and visited 227 businesses licensed to sell liquor.  They cited 68 licensees for violations of liquor control laws.  Seventy percent of the licensees visited complied with Illinois liquor laws and refused to serve underage customers.
