PLCB announces record sales as lawmakers float pricing changes

The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board (PLCB) on Wednesday announced record sales for the 2018-2019 fiscal year, just a day after state lawmakers held a hearing on whether to forego the board’s current pricing model.

 

The PLCB is reporting $2.67 billion in sales for the most recent fiscal year, which the board says is an increase of $75.2 million from the previous year. The liquor control board, which oversees liquor sales throughout the state, says the increase continues a 20-year trend of year-over-year sales increases.

Gov. Wolf pumps the brakes on PLCB borrowing effort as CFA moves forward with $1.5 billion monetization of Tobacco Settlement Fund dollars

The Commonwealth Financing Authority board on Tuesday unanimously adopted a resolution granting authority for staff to move forward with either a bond or sale of future revenues headed to the state’s Tobacco Settlement Fund in an amount not to exceed $1.5 billion.

 

That action, according to the Wolf administration, has allowed the governor to put the brakes on his pursuit of seeking $1.25 billion in up-front monetization of future General Fund transfers from the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board.
