The committee is expected to recommend the elimination of particularly onerous provisions of the liquor control system. The state said the committee would have 120 days to seek to "ensure that the regulations are simple, fair, transparent and efficient, and conducive to business growth and job creation."
The state said it received nearly 70 applications to fill spots on the advisory committee.
Gov. Rick Snyder, a former Ann Arbor venture capitalist, formed the Office of Regulatory Reinvention to streamline the state's regulatory structure and eliminate bureaucratic inefficiencies.
“A comprehensive review of Michigan’s liquor control rules and regulations is overdue,” said Rob Nederhood, deputy director of the ORR, in a statement.
Arbor Brewing Co. owners Matt and Renee Greff are typically known to be supporters of Democratic Party politicians but they surprised colleagues by publicly supporting Snyder during the 2010 election. They also own the Corner Brewery in Ypsilanti.
