The Pennsylvania Interfaith Impact Network (PIIN) is urging people of faith from throughout Southwestern Pennsylvania and across the Commonwealth to oppose Gov. Corbett's proposal to dismantle the PA Liquor Control Board (PLCB.)

"This risky scheme jeopardizes 5,000 family-sustaining jobs that the PLCB provides for our friends and neighbors across the state. And it jeopardizes public health and safety in every community in the state," said Lois Campbell, Executive Director of PIIN. 

"Pennsylvanians want our leaders to tackle the serious issues that our Commonwealth and nation are confronting. Putting people out of work makes no sense and turning thousands of stores into beer outlets makes no sense,” Campbell added. 

PIIN is a network of congregations and organizations across southwestern PA dedicated to building strong communities.  

"We opposed these ideas last year and we oppose them again this year. We need our elected leaders to work together to improve our communities, not waste time on risky schemes that will jeopardize the well being of 5,000 families,” said Jonathan Mayo, Vice President of PIIN.
