Tom Wolf (D) is continuing to crack down on Pennsylvania businesses, with the state suspending liquor licenses from establishments accused of operating in violation of his lockdown orders.
“Pennsylvania State Police Bureau of Liquor Control Enforcement (BLCE) on behalf of the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board (PLCB) has suspended LID# 67378, Rusty’s Pittsburgh Sports Bar LLC for not adhering to the Governor’s mandate to cease the sale of food and alcohol for on-premises consumption,” a notice on the door of the Castle Shannon sports bar reads.
However, she said he has been accused of violating Section 462 of the liquor code.
The businesses cannot resume operations — even offering takeout or delivery — until the liquor control board lifts the suspension or the governor revises his orders.
“In other words, if the coronavirus lockdown didn’t kill the bars’ business, the spreading liquor license suspensions just might,” PennLive adds.
