You guys are so far off the rocker, I have worked for the PLCB going on 8 years, We do this every year, some years more items, some years less items, if you think privatize is the way to go, you will be paying up to $1.35 to $1.85 per bottle more, why would you want to kill the goose that laids the golden egg, Once they spend the money from the sale of the state stores, Were are they going to get the money from next?? Maybe they will tax your automobile, like they do in other states, the newer the car the more tax you pay. Think About IT!!!!

You mean we will SAVE tax money and actually make more of it too. Most tax money from liquor store sales are from taxes on the liquor itself. Whether private or public, that money is still being collected. State clerks at the stores are still getting their PENSIONS and HEALTHCARE paid by the general fund. Every Pennsylvanian is paying that whether we buy liquor or not. Remove the state job, save taxpayers by not paying those benefits. Revenue would increase because competition will lower price and lessen border bleed. So, privatization will increase money to the state and save it money. I have never worked for the PLCB, but I certainly do pay the taxes that fund it!

If you get rid of the stores the pensions and benefits will still be paid to the current employees as well as the the retired ones! right now all those are paid from the sale of liquor it comes outta the 2 plus billion in sales, the 500 million in taxes and profit is after that is paid. Because you sell them it does not mean you will drop the current pension responsibilities you will just have no money coming in to fund them thus more taxes for everybody!

First of all The PLCB employees are paid from the profits the store makes, No taxpayer pays for the PLCB employee. They are self funded.. and on top of that, they still put in over 500 million dollars a year to the general fund, not to mention the money that is given to the State police to help fight underage drinking and DUI's. The state store's do not cost the taxpayer anything. Why kill the goose that laids the golden egg, It does NOT make sense. Come on we all know how private business's work, Pay me cash I charge no tax!! Its like selling the furance to pay the gas bill,,, IT DOES NOT MAKE SENSE!!!!
