Pennsylvania House Votes to Privatize Retail Liquor Sales

Bill now headed to the Senate


HARRISBURG, Pa., March 22 (UPI) — A bill that would privatize retail liquor sales in Pennsylvania passed the state House of Representatives Thursday after a long debate.

The measure now goes to the state Senate, which is expected to make significant changes, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported. Dominic Pileggi, the Republican majority leader in the upper chamber, said no one should expect the Senate to simply pass the House bill unchanged.
