HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Pennsylvania liquor regulators have waived nearly $28 million in 2021 fees for bars, restaurants, hotels and other retail licensees that have been hit hard by the pandemic and state-imposed restrictions. The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board approved the relief measure on Wednesday, less than a week after Gov. Tom Wolf announced it. Trade groups have said the waiver of fees, while a start, would barely make a dent in their members’ staggering financial losses.
