Tyrant PA Gov. Wolf “Helps” Small Businesses After Destroying Them With Lockdowns


Aiming to offer some help to an industry battered by the coronavirus pandemic, Gov. Tom Wolf said Thursday he wants to waive liquor license fees for restaurants and bars.

Wolf said he is working with the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board to waive licensing fees through 2021, starting January 1, 2021. The administration said the move would provide $20 million in relief to more than 16,000 Pennsylvania restaurants bars, clubs, and hotels.

“My administration continues to look for innovative ways that we can support the bar and restaurant industry,” Wolf said in a press release. “Eliminating liquor license fees is an important step toward helping bars and restaurants retain the capital they need to weather the storm of COVID-19.”

Wolf held a press conference in Pittsburgh to talk about the effort. He said the liquor control board would move to waive the fees at its next board meeting. He noted the board is independent and has the authority to act on its own. But he said he hoped the liquor board would do “the right thing.”
