State Sen. Rob Wonderling is starting again to push for the privatization of Pennsylvania’s state-owned liquor stores. Here is Sen. Wonderling’s commentary on privatizing the state stores from 2007.
- Privatization of Liquor Stores: No Threat to Public Safety
- Public Benefits from Private Liquor
- Testimony on the Privatization of State Stores
- Report from the Liquor Control Board on underage drinking, which concludes that Pennsylvania has similar rates of college-age drinking as the national average (most of which allows private licensees to sell alcohol), and higher rates of high school age drinking (which they attribute to a trend across states in the Northeast).
