Put consumers in control

Beer and wine in grocery stores. One-stop shopping for beer, wine and spirits. It's time for Pennsylvanians to enjoy the same convenience that practically every other state enjoys.

It's obvious that Gov. Corbett's plan to end our state-run monopoly will benefit Pennsylvania in several ways. It will hand the liquor business to the private sector. Individual mom-and-pop shops will be able to control their own inventory and serve consumers the products they want. Prices will go down as businesses compete for our business. No more having to drive all across town for different products of varying quantities.

Pennsylvanians will enjoy increased convenience, greater selection and more-competitive pricing. The bottom line is that it puts the consumer in control, rather than the state.
