What may end up derailing the Republicans' drive to privatize Pennsylvania's sale of wine and liquor is not who gets to sell it - but who gets to deliver it.
Both a four-month-old plan by Governor Tom Corbett, a Republican, and a bill that passed the GOP-controlled House in March would dismantle the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board's less-seen but lucrative business of buying and delivering wine and liquor.
However, a state senator who will play a key role in drafting that chamber's plan has sent strong signals that he does not think now is the right time to privatize the wholesale system, even as a top House Republican takes the hard position that no privatization bill could pass his chamber without it.
That disagreement is emerging as a key sticking point as top Republican lawmakers try to reach a compromise in a quickly shrinking amount of time before the July 1st deadline that Corbett has pressed them to finalize a plan.
