Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett was in Delaware County pushing his liquor privatization legislation.

He appeared with local leaders in Springfield Wednesday to discuss the benefits of the proposal.

The plan calls for liquor and beer licenses to be sold to private retailers to distribute alcohol.

Corbett said he wants to make it easier for consumers.

He added that sales of the liquor licenses and money raised through taxes would go toward improving education.
