Holidays May Not Be as Merry
HARRISBURG, Penn.—Pennsylvania will become the sixteenth of seventeen states that have a liquor control boards to adoption a rationing system for whiskey. The program is described as experimental and will be in place prior to the holiday season. The intent is to alleviate the long lines of customers that develop under the current system. The new rationing program will continue after the trial period if it is successful, but will be discontinued if not. There are at present no details on when or how the new rationing system will be put in place other than an indication it will commence in the near future. Whiskey is the only spirit falling under the rationing program. Rum and wine will remain unregulated, and brandy and gin will remain under the current one-bottle limit.
