Moul Supports Plan to Privatize Liquor Sales in Pennsylvania
2/1/2013
Rep. Dan Moul (R-Adams/Franklin) joined Gov. Tom Corbett and Lt. Gov. Jim Cawley in Pittsburgh for the announcement of the administration’s plan to privatize liquor sales in Pennsylvania. 
HARRISBURG – Rep. Dan Moul (R-Adams/Franklin) traveled to Pittsburgh this week for the announcement of the Corbett administration’s plan to privatize liquor sales in the Commonwealth.

The administration proposes to dismantle the wholesale and retail operations of the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board (PLCB), while maintaining the PLCB’s licensing and regulatory functions. There is only one liquor store in Adams County. The governor’s plan would double the number of retail liquor outlets in Pennsylvania, and the proposed revenue from the sale of liquor and wine licenses would be used to fund a planned $1 billion, multi-year education block grant program.

“It’s high time, long past overdue, for Pennsylvania to get out of the liquor business,” said Moul. “We have a monopoly on it. That’s really not the role of government to monopolize a particular business. We can still regulate and we can still enforce − and enhance enforcement − and education is going to get a shot in the arm to boot.”

Moul said consumer surveys have consistently favored a private system.
