• The PLCB returned $717.2 million to the General Fund: – $381.9 million in liquor tax – $150.2 million in state sales tax – $185.1 million transferred to the General Fund • The Pennsylvania State Police received $31.3 million for the enforcement of liquor laws.
Their gross revenue 2018/19, was $2.7 Billion dollars. Looks like "overhead' amounted to roughly $19 million?
My ex-wife spent over 20 years working at PLCB HQ, some of that in supervisory positions. She moved to Health for the last ten years, before she retired.
Efforts have been made in the General Assembly for decades, to ditch PLCB and go with private business sales, like most other states do. There's a reason why liquor prices are usually much less in surrounding states, than in PA.
Looking at your figures above, Denny, If the pLCB were to go away, the state would still get the liquor tax and the sales tax. And we would get rid of a bureaucracy.
Spot on Mutt, plus private sector jobs would be added too = more PA revenue. And it would save gas and time if we could do this at one location. All this is just common cents so, so I guess the legiscritters will never act. JM Go figger,
Do it today, tomorrow may never come!
Science is observation. Observation is science. Accurate recording of observation is provable science.
