Gov. Corbett is expected to announce his plan Wednesday for privatizing Pennsylvania's 600-plus state liquor stores.
He has scheduled an afternoon news conference in Pittsburgh for the long-awaited announcement.
Though the administration has tried to keep details of the plan private, top Corbett officials have been met with groups with a stake in the liquor market over the last few weeks. In those meetings, Corbett aides have signalled that they want the system squarely in private hands, and that they want to open up the wine and beer market to grocery stores, convenience stores, restaurants and taverns, and big-box stores.
