HARRISBURG, Jan. 7 – State Rep. Dan Deasy, D-Allegheny, was appointed today as Democratic chairman of the House Liquor Control Committee by House Democratic Leader Frank Dermody.

“I’m elated to have been appointed as Democratic chair of the House Liquor Control Committee,” Deasy said. “I’d like to thank House leadership for this assignment, and I’m eager to get to work and do what we can – in bipartisan fashion – to further progress the state’s Liquor Code, adequately enforce liquor licensing and keep alcohol out of the hands of minors.”
