(WBRE/WYOU) — A bill in the state could change the way liquor is priced here in Pennsylvania.
The House Liquor Control Committee held a public hearing on House Bill 1512. It would repeal the Liquor Control Board’s flexible pricing ability. The bill’s sponsor says flexible pricing hasn’t lowered prices or brought in more revenue for the state.
“We have an opportunity to set and own our retail price in our store. The supplier can sell it to us for whatever they want to. We can make a determination of what we’re going to sell it for,” Mike Negra, Liquor Control Board member said.
If passed, the Liquor Control Board would have to follow a strict formula to set prices.
