Corbett calls for selling off Pa.'s state stores

HARRISBURG, Pa. - October 20, 2010

Corbett said Tuesday that he will submit a plan to get the state out of the liquor business as one source of the revenue that will be needed to balance the state budget. He did not offer any details.

Democratic gubernatorial candidate Dan Onorato has said he would not propose any change in the state store system if he's elected.

Republican former Gov. Tom Ridge called for closing the state stores, but the plan faltered amid weak support from the Legislature and business leaders.
