PA Senators Hear from Beer, Liquor Sellers



State senators are continuing to explore the liberalization of Pennsylvania's wine, beer and liquor laws in a second hearing that focused on groups that make and sell alcoholic beverages.
 
The Senate hearing Tuesday afternoon was the second of three planned hearings, as Governor 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 who testified in front of the Senate Law and Justice Committee were representatives of beer distributors, bars, restaurants, wineries and more. Corbett wants a bill on his desk by July 1st.
