from the inbox, March 21:
Auditor General Eugene DePasquale today issued the following statement on legislation moving through the General Assembly to change the way alcohol is sold in Pennsylvania:
“I am looking forward to working with Senators to ensure that any changes to the Liquor Code include transparency and accountability measures that the Department of the Auditor General’s office can bring to the issue. Regardless of how and where alcohol is sold in Pennsylvania, independent audits are essential to ensure complete compliance with conditions established by law.”
The House of Representatives today passed House Bill 790 to allow private retailers to sell alcohol in Pennsylvania. The bill now moves to the Senate which is scheduled to return to Harrisburg on April 8.
