Pennsylvania Food Merchants Association Praises The Passage Of HB 790 And Urges Senate To Support Convenient Adult Beverage Sales

CAMP HILL, Pa., March 22, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Pennsylvania Food Merchants Association (PFMA), the state's advocate for food retailers, praised the Pennsylvania House of Representatives today for voting to pass House Bill 790 in support of reforming Pennsylvania's alcohol sales system.

"We are very pleased that House members voted in favor of moving Pennsylvania forward to modernized alcohol sales," said Alex Baloga, PFMA director of government relations. "PFMA will continue to work for changes that treat all of our members fairly and increase choice and convenience for consumers."

House Bill 790, as passed by the full House, reforms beer, liquor and wine sales and is a significant step forward for Pennsylvanians. It now moves on to the Pennsylvania Senate where it will be debated.

"This is a historic victory for consumers, retailers and for Pennsylvania; however, we still have to work to get this bill passed through the Senate," said PFMA President and CEO David McCorkle. "I urge all members, their associates and their customers to contact your Senators to ask for their support of HB 790."
