A house spokesperson tells WRTA News that following votes on amendments -- a final vote in the chamber is expected to take place Thursday.
The key vote Wednesday was a Democratic-sponsored "gut-and-replace" bill that would have kept the current system largely in place but made a series of reforms, including longer Sunday hours at state liquor stores. That bill failed by a 17-vote margin.
The amendment votes Wednesday suggested the measure may have the support Republican leaders need to send the bill to the Senate. Governor Tom Corbett favors liquor privatization, and wants to devote the proceeds to fund public education
