Headline Harrisburg - October 6, 2011

Privatization survey results are in - Thank you to everyone who chose to take part in my recent online survey regarding proposed legislation to privatize the state-run liquor stores. These surveys help me to gauge constituent opinions on key legislative topics.

Of those who responded, 54 percent are in favor of the proposal, while 46 percent oppose it.
