Subject: Liquor License Renewal Surcharge Reduction for Clubs

In the near future, I plan to introduce legislation to amend the Liquor Code (Act 21 of 1951) to reduce the cost of liquor license fees for veterans’ organizations and other nonprofit clubs.

As part of Act 39 of 2016, language was included to establish a $700 annual surcharge on all liquor licenses. However, this annual fee has become a difficult expense for many of the nonprofit clubs that play important roles in our communities, like the American Legion. Therefore, my legislation would reduce the surcharge from $700 to $200 for all clubs covered under the act.

I hope you will join me in sponsoring this legislation. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact my office at 717-787-7105.

Introduced as SB791
