Your boots on the ground.
The Pennsylvania Licensed Beverage and Tavern Association is the only non-profit, statewide organization that fights exclusively to protect liquor and beer licensees and their Pennsylvania licenses. Every year, bills are introduced in Harrisburg that need our attention. Some are good for bars, taverns, pubs, and restaurants that serve liquor. Some are bad.
Regardless, for this reason, if you own an R, H, or E liquor license, you should not only belong to the PLBTA, but also contribute to TavernPAC.
Your membership helps to pay for our lobbying and communications teams that work closely with numerous legislative committee leaders and staffers as well as leadership in both the Pennsylvania House of Representatives and Senate. Our teams are in regular contact with regulatory agencies as well.
Your TavernPAC contributions are used to support tavern-friendly legislators.
Not a penny is wasted in protecting your business interests.
If you are a member of the PLBTA, you will receive regular private news updates to let you know how and what we are doing to protect your interests.
Please stay tuned through Member Communications and our Social Media Channels for updates on this year’s legislative issues.
A message from the Pennsylvania Licensed Beverage & Tavern Association:
The Pennsylvania Licensed Beverage and Tavern Association has had a significant presence in Harrisburg since 1941. We are the largest non-profit organization in the state made up of retail liquor licensees and we lobby the state legislature to protect and defend the rights exclusively for retail licensees in Pennsylvania every day.
This year and the next could possibly hold the changes in the liquor code and retail licensee industry. The need for your business to be represented at the state capitol is of the utmost importance.
We are asking for your help with our political action committee (PAC) fund. Even if you are not a member of the Association, you can still help us to protect YOUR BUSINESS by contributing to this fund so that we can help our friends in the State Legislature. These friends are the men and women at the state capitol in Harrisburg that stand up for your rights and refuse to cast votes that will hurt you, they introduce bills that will help you grow your business, and they refuse to bow down to demands that take away from the value of your license.
We must maintain a powerful PAC fund in order to ensure our message is heard.
We urge all licensees to mail your contribution today so that we can stay in the race to help all of us! Mail a contribution of $300 (or whatever your budget allows) in the form of a personal check made out to the Tavern PAC to 214 Pine Street, Suite 100, Harrisburg, PA 17101. Also ask your employees to send a check for $25 (or whatever they can afford). We are not allowed to accept corporate checks for this fund so please make sure your check is personal. Call us with any questions at (717) 232-8671.
Thank you in advance for your help. Together we can protect and preserve the rich heritage that is the bar and tavern industry in Pennsylvania.
Remember, politics is the only game in which spectators lose!
