Pa. senators to hear from beer, liquor sellers

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — State senators will continue exploring the liberalization of Pennsylvania’s wine, beer and liquor laws in a second hearing that’ll focus on groups that make and sell alcoholic beverages.

The Senate hearing this afternoon is the second of three planned hearings, as Gov. Tom Corbett pushes his fellow Republicans who control the Legislature to expand the sale of alcohol to more outlets.

A bill passed the House in March that would create 1,200 new private wine and liquor store licenses and allow thousands of bars, restaurants and grocery stores to begin selling bottles of wine.

Among the people testifying in front of the Senate Law and Justice Committee are expected to be representatives of beer distributors, bars, restaurants, wineries and more. Corbett wants a bill on his desk by July 1.
