As we reported several weeks ago, the PLCB proposed a regulation change to allow licensees to pay for malt or brewed beverage orders with credit cards. The public comment period is now open and will end on May 2, 2016. The PA Licensed Beverage & Tavern Association has submitted our support of this regulation change to the Independent Regulatory Review Commission.
Our April 7, 2016 letter of support written by President and Commonwealth Licensee, Thomas Boock:
Dear Mr. Rodrigo Diaz,
The Pennsylvania Licensed Beverage & Tavern Association is writing today in full support of proposed IRRC Regulation#3142. The proposal allows Pennsylvania’s retail licensees to pay for malt or brewed beverages with a credit card as well as a check.
This positive change will allow our hard-working small business owners more convenience in their purchases of malt or brewed beverages. Our association agrees with the Board’s assessment, “Credit cards are widely used by businesses and consumers and importing distributors and distributors are already permitted to accept credit cards as payment from nonlicensee purchasers.”
We would like to thank the PA Liquor Control Board for offering the proposed regulation and look forward to final approval.
Thomas Boock, President
