Sen. Erickson Throws Cold Water On Liquor Privatization

See Ted Erickson And Republican Losers for commentary

Sen. Ted Erickson (R-26) in a talk before the Springfield Republicans, tonight, April 17, put a damper on expectations that Pennsylvania would get out of the booze business. He said there were "questions." He said the citizens could expect some "modernization" but left the strong impression that HB 790 would not survive as passed by the House.

Erickson also said that Gov. Tom Corbett has met with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius about accepting federal money that would make an estimated 600,000 low-wage Pennsylvanians eligible for Medicaid, the government health program for "poor" people, and has come away with positive feelings. He did say that it is not certain that Corbett will accept the money.

In better news, Delaware County Council Chairman Tom McGarrigle that Monroe Energy has made $100 million in profit since taking over ConocoPhillips refinery in Trainer.

It was also noted that about 20 homes a month were being sold in Springfield with the prices stable.

GOP Chairman Mike Puppio noted that  people move to Springfield due to the quality of the community and much of that has to do with the government of the township.

And that is true.
