Pennsylvania Representative Jerry Knowles of the 124th District has introduced a bill (HB 1901) which seeks to establish a waiver of the new liquor surcharge fee of $700 for Volunteer Fire Companies and VSOs (Veterans Service Organizations) like American Legion Posts.

The bill seeks to address the financial hardship imposed when the original bill returned from the Pennsylvania Senate with the surcharge included and was signed into law by Governor Wolf as ACT 39.

The new bill has the support of both Veterans Affairs Committee Chairmen Barrar and Sainato as well as 18 other co-sponsors. HB1901 has been referred to the Liquor Control Subcommittee for review.

We, the undersigned, thank and support Representative Knowles for his leadership in supporting Veterans Organizations in their continued mission to provide services to the community.
