Agree or disagree that the state should even be involved in the sale of liquor in the first place or that the sale of liquor (or licenses) should fund education, a one-time influx of cash is not a long-term solution. It's a $1 billion band-aid that will be gone in four years. When that time is up, and all these new programs are humming along, the cash flow from the sale of licenses will stop coming into districts.
The liquor system in Pennsylvania has been around for 80 years. Certainly we can take our time and make things get done correctly the first time.
