Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2019 - 2020 Regular Session


Posted: May 22, 2020 03:48 PM
From: Senator Lisa M. Boscola
To: All Senate members
Subject: Easing Restrictions on Performing Arts Facility Liquor Licenses
I plan to introduce legislation which would extend the benefits of selling alcoholic beverages to-go to performing arts venue licenses in Pennsylvania.  Current law prohibits these specific liquor licenses from selling alcoholic beverages to-go – for off premises consumption.  This bill would add language giving the Liquor Control Board the ability to provide these licenses with temporary authority to do what currently other R-licenses are doing in order to turn some profits during the pandemic.
Many of the these performing arts venues are community-based, and seasonal, relying heavily on annual events for fundraising needs.  This proposal merely seeks to give these licensees the same benefits afforded to hotels and restaurants.  I would ask for your support in joining me in co-sponsoring this legislation.

Introduced as SB1175
