House Liquor Control Committee considers license transfers

The House Liquor Control committee discussed House Bill 1617 in Philadelphia Tuesday, which would add charges to hotel license holders to transfer them to restaurant licenses.
 
Introduced last month by Rep. Craig Staats (R-Bucks), the bill demands $25,000 for the transfer of a hotel license to a restaurant license. Additional sales within the five years following the transfer would cost another $25,000 or 25 percent of the sale price, whichever is greater.
