Senators have a lot to consider after the third and final Senate committee hearing on privatizing beer, wine and liquor sales.
Tuesday's hearing was a prelude to a busy June as Governor Tom Corbett presses lawmakers to pass legislation before July 1st. But a bill that passed the House has little Senate support, and the committee chairman, Senator Charles McIlhinney, says he's wrestling with several issues as he finishes writing his bill.
Those issues include how much the Pennsylvania treasury will suffer from privatizing state-controlled wine and liquor sales, how to keep prices from rising and whether to privatize the wine and liquor wholesale system.
McIlhinney says he favors allowing Pennsylvania's 12,000 private beer licensees to sell beer in a wider variety of quantities, plus wine and liquor.
