PLCB Exec: Keep State Stores

Conti says the prices of some items would double under a privatization bill now before the state house of representatives, and what the Liquor Control Board really needs is more flexibility in pricing so it can act as a modern retailer.  He Appeared Thursday on the WNPV talk program Comment Please by Univest.
