Senator Killion Introduces Legislation to Help Local Small Business Owners
a news conference I announced the introduction of Senate Bill 1359, legislation
that would level the playing field for hundreds of beer distributors throughout
Pennsylvania who are now feeling pressure of increased competition.
1359 provides more than 1,200 Pennsylvania beer distributors with the
opportunity to apply for a license to sell wine. The new license would offer
parity to small business owner and provide distributors with the same ability to
sell wine that was recently extended to grocery stores and other restaurant
license holders in Act 39 of 2016. The new license allows distributors to
purchase the license for $2,000 and permits them to sell up to four bottles of
wine at a time.
