To help Alabamians have a better understanding of how a wide
variety of state and local agencies use the revenues from beverage alcohol
sales, the Alabama Alcoholic Beverage Control Board is today releasing a new,
easy to digest resource.


Wheredoesthemoneygoalabama.com
takes key financial and retail data
and presents it in a manner that is informative, helpful and relatable.


“We want everyone in the state of Alabama to realize the
positive impact the ABC Board has delivered to residents of the state for 85
years,” ABC Administrator Mac Gipson, said. “For one, it is impressive to see
that the ABC has protected consumers and generated more than $8 billion dollars
to help fund the essential functions of state government since 1937.”


Other key pieces of information highlighted include the fact
that Alabama is the only control state in America that offers citizens a choice
between state-run stores and the independent market, the number of products available
to spirits licensees, charts and graphs showing where annual revenues go and
much more.


“The ABC Board publishes an annual report that includes this
information,” Gipson said. “We wanted give the public a quick and easy format
so anyone can take a few moments of their time to better understand how
critical this agency is to Alabama’s health, safety and financial bottom line.”


The website will be updated on an annual basis when the Board’s
previous fiscal year financials are submitted to the State of Alabama.
