State lawmakers to discuss expanded alcohol sales

Posted: Updated:
HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) - State lawmakers are expected to debate this week whether or not to expand the sale of alcohol.   

The Senate is going to be looking at a house bill that would allow beer in wine sales in grocery and convenience stores.  

But there's a lot of passion on both sides of the issue. On Monday, State Senator Mike Folmer of Lebanon County said he will be voting against expanding alcohol sales. He sees hypocrisy in those who support that but are against his efforts to legalize medical marijuana.

"I have people that are against my bill that want to have beer in every convenience store, in every gas station, in every grocery store in Pennsylvania," he said.

Folmer says he doesn't know whether or not the issue will be resolved in this session.
