Pennsylvania's liquor law took center stage yesterday when Gov. Tom Corbett proposed privatizing state-run liquor stores.
So we asked a couple of Upper Saucon Patch Facebook friends to finish this statement: "I think liquor privatization is..."
-"is something that works in other states, so a welcome addition to PA."
-"is all the state should privatize, and don't touch the lottery."
-"Should start tomorrow!"
-"Should have been done a long time ago."
-"is WELL over due!"
Not everyone felt privatizing was the right move to make.
-"is a viable option, but one that should be looked at thoroughly and put up for OPEN bids and handled transparently (in other words, not handed to some politician's ne'er do well brother to keep the patronage going)."
-"is a bad idea. State stores are profitable. How often does our government do something profitable? Plus kids really stand out in a liquor store, making it just a bit harder for teens to get alcohol."
What do you think about privatizing liquor stores? Tell us in the comments!
