J. E. Foley to the Kansas Legal Control Council

J. E. Foley to the Kansas Legal Control Council
Creator: Foley, J. E.
Date: January 14, 1949
Topeka, Kansas resident J. E. Foley writes the Kansas Legal Control Council of Wichita concerning the repeal of the "Bone Dry" prohibition law originally passed in 1917. A more strict enforcement of the liquor law in 1946 prompted a discussion of its repeal. A proposition to repeal the law passed in the 1948 November general election. Mr. Foley voted for repeal. He claims drinking became more common under prohibition. He outlines his support of state-owned liquor stores verses local control of liquor by individual cities. Mr. Foley also considers the effect of such laws on the poorer classes. Similar letters sent to the governor consider prohibition in terms of religious or political affiliation, race, class, gender, age, or labor force. The state legislature passed the Liquor Control Act in 1949.
