|In the near future, I plan to introduce legislation to amend the Liquor Code.
As you many of you know, recently the General Assembly passed House Bill 1690, now Act 39 of 2016. While Act 39 was a vital step in reforming an archaic and out-of-date liquor system, I believe we must continue to strive for further reforms.
In light of this, my legislation will establish a spirit expanded permit. Such permits would be available to holders of restaurant and hotel liquor licenses, and such licensees would be eligible to sell up to three liters of spirits.
It is my belief that this legislation will continue to move our Commonwealth’s liquor system into the 21st century, while providing greater convenience for our constituents in regards to purchasing spirits and providing our Commonwealth with needed revenue.
During the 2015-2016 Legislative Session, this bill was introduced as House Bill 2357. The following members served as co-sponsors:
REESE, TURZAI, BENNINGHOFF, CHRISTIANA, DIAMOND, DUNBAR, EVERETT, GROVE, A. HARRIS, MILLARD, ORTITAY, REGAN, ROTHMAN, SACCONE, SAYLOR, TOPPER and WARD
Introduced as HB438
