Pennsylvania Liquor Fees to Rise

PA State Liquor StoresAs reported at KDKA, the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board (PLCB) will be raising fees on bottles of liquor beginning in January.

The fee increase is expected to generate “millions of dollars.” We aren’t sure if that money is for PLCB marketing, to offer more wine boutiques for friends of the administration, to hire additional PLCB consultants, to build wine vending machines, or just to take more money from Pennsylvania residents.

Regardless, here’s a novel idea: Privatize Pennsylvania’s state liquor stores!
