Governor Wolf's Week, June 5 - June 11, 2016
 
This week, Governor Wolf took the most significant step the commonwealth has taken to reform our liquor system in 80 years by signing a bipartisan, compromise liquor modernization bill. Governor Wolf's goal has always been to modernize the sale of liquor and beer in Pennsylvania and this reform package will finally bring Pennsylvania's wine and spirits system into the 21st century. This bill will allow grocery stores that currently sell beer to sell up to four bottles of wine, will permit restaurants and hotels to sell up to four bottles of wine for take-out, and removes Sunday restrictions and state-mandated holidays.
