Governor-elect Tom Corbett (R) is going to try and get Pennsylvania out of the liquor store business.  Two other governors have tried and failed, however, the new power shift in Harrisburg may finally enable this measure to go through.  House Bill 2350 will be reintroduced.  Estimates put the sale of the stores at $2 billion dollars.  It is also hoped to substantially reduce the number of Pennsylvania residents, who live near bordering states, from purchasing alcohol outside of Pennsylvania.
