Articles pertaining to the privatization of the Pennsylvania Control and Liquor Board
Recently, a Freedom of Information Request was made for the home addresses of all Pennsylvania State employees. Both Local 1776 and the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board feel that it is not appropriate or safe to reveal the home addresses of our Wine and Spirit Store members; therefore, Local 1776 and the PLCB have sent objections to this request to the Commonwealth.
Below is a summary of the PLCB Annual Report for Fiscal Year 2012-13. The agency contributed more than $660 million to State and Local Treasuries in this record breaking year.
Governor Corbett's reckless scheme to privatize PA's Wine and Spirits Stores does not reflect what Pennsylvania voters expect state government to accomplish this legislative session.
August 5, 2013 -- The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board has reported record revenues of $2.17 billion-- a 4.5 percent increase over fiscal year 2011-12; and record total contributions to the General Fund in profits, taxes and other transfers of more than $660 million-- an increase of $21 million over last FY.

The media are carrying reports suggesting the fight is over. But at best, it's over only for now. House Leader Mike Turzai is clear he'll resume the push for privatization in September.
