HARRISBURG, PENNSYLVANIA -- State Representative Mike Turzai has penned a bill that renews the age-old fight to privatize liquor sales in Pennsylvania.
Although numerous lawmakers have failed at turning around the state-run system for selling alcohol since Prohibition ended in 1933, Turzai says there's a growing shift in public sentiment.
Plus, Turzai said the state's growing need for revenue could be the final push to get the legislation off the ground.
House Bill 2350 would privatize the business by auctioning off licenses for 750 retail stores and 100 wholesale distributors.
