Deasy honored to be majority chair of the Liquor Control Committee

Committed to key issues of helping small businesses, preserving jobs

HARRISBURG, March 7 – Rep. Dan Deasy, D-Allegheny, said he is honored to be appointed the majority chair of the House Liquor Control Committee for the 2023-24 legislative session.

The Liquor Control Committee handles legislation dealing with the manufacturing and sale of alcohol in the state through Pennsylvania’s Liquor Code. It also oversees the operations of the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board, as well as liquor enforcement, which is handled by the Bureau of Liquor Control Enforcement within the Pennsylvania State Police.

“I am grateful for the opportunity to serve as the majority chairman of this committee,” Deasy said. “In this new role, I remain committed to looking for ways to help small businesses that are still recovering from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. I will also fight to preserve the family-sustaining jobs of 3,500 state store workers previously threatened by efforts to privatize the state’s liquor system.”

Deasy has served as the minority chair of the Liquor Control Committee since 2019.
