The Privatization Debate Isn’t Dead, It’s Just Dead In Its Tracks

So that liquor store privatization thing we’ve been going on and on about for that past year or so? Yeah, it doesn’t look like it’s ever going to be resolved. At least not during this current legislative session. The latest? The state’s House Majority Leader Mike Turzai, who, like, totally bailed yesterday on a scheduled appearance on WHYY’s Radio Times, vows the fight is still on, still gathering support, and should be back on the House floor by Monday, according to the Inky. We’ve heard it all before, and frankly we’re skeptical the issue will be taken up again, since lawmakers have about ten days to get the state’s budget in order before they take off for their summer break. After that, it’s anyone’s guess if or when the matter will be brought up again. [Inquirer]
