|Subject:||Wine & Spirits Auction Permit for Private and Nonpublic Schools|
|I am reintroducing Senate Bill 193 of last session. This legislation amends the Liquor Code by expanding the list of entities that can receive a wine and spirits auction permit.
Under the current law, various organizations (i.e., any nonprofit hospital, any hospice, institution of higher education) may apply to the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board to receive a wine and spirits auction permit. Upon payment of a fee of $30 per day, the permit is good for a period of not more than four consecutive or nonconsecutive days in a calendar year. The permittee would be authorized to sell, by auction, wine and spirits by the bottle or case to any person on any day for which the permit is issued. Wine and spirits auction permits are only issued for use at an event which is used by the permittee as a means of raising funds for its operation.
My legislation would amend the list of organizations eligible to receive a wine and spirits auction permit to include any private academic school licensed with the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) and any nonpublic, unlicensed school registered with the PDE.
Cosponsors of Senate Bill 193 were Senators Phillips-Hill, Pittman and Stefano.
Please join me in cosponsoring this important legislation. If you have questions regarding this legislation please reach out to Greg Beckenbaugh in my office at 717-787-5490 or email@example.com.
Introduced as SB118
