Rep. Jeff Yaroch today called on Gov. Whitmer to direct the Michigan Liquor Control Commission to stop buying Russian-made products – a response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
“Although these individual acts taken alone may not largely impact the Russian economy, we must all come together, and do everything we can to starve the Russian war machine and make it clear to this dictator that there will be retribution for his unconscionable act of totalitarianism,” said Yaroch, of Richmond.
Yaroch chairs a House Appropriations subcommittee overseeing the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs. The Liquor Control Commission is part of LARA.
Yaroch formally made his request in a letter sent to Gov. Whitmer.
