Privatization

PA Lawmakers Stall on Privatizing Liquor Stores

Because it's such ... an unprecedented idea?

Attention has turned toward the state Senate since the House passed House Bill 790, which would effectively close all state-owned wine and liquor stores and create a new private licensing system.

There's little to no support for the bill as written in the Senate, according to Scarnati. But that doesn't mean lawmakers aren't still furiously crafting and re-drafting proposals to get some type of liquor bill passed and sent to Gov. Tom Corbett.
