A Third Sensible and On-Time State Budget
The good news is that the General Assembly sent Governor Corbett a $27.83 billion budget that supports record investment in education, including science, technology, engineering, and math programs and vital job training initiatives throughout the commonwealth. This is a pro-jobs budget consistent with the same successful elements Pennsylvania has seen since Governor Corbett took office, aiding in the creation of more than 125,000 private sector jobs.

A short video produced by the National Federation of Independent Business/Pennsylvania sizes the entire issue of liquor privatization up nicely, and should compel the Senate to send the bill to the Governor. Consumers are fed up. Businesses are missing out on opportunities. Pennsylvania is losing tax revenue and jobs to other states. That should make for enough of a critical mass in a free market economy for Pennsylvania to join the modern world, and 48 other states, and privatize alcohol sales.

Pennsylvania may finally be on the threshold of getting rid of the nagging inconvenience and economic inefficiency of a liquor control system designed in 1933 at the end of prohibition.
House Majority Leader Mike Turzai (R-Allegheny) has introduced House Bill 720 which is Governor Tom Corbett’s proposal to privatize the wholesale and retail side of the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board (PLCB). Leader Turzai hopes to bring the bill to the floor by the end of March.
