Pennsylvania beer lovers will soon have more time to buy beer on Sundays under a bill that lawmakers approved with bipartisan support Wednesday and sent to the governor. The legislation, which originally sought to create a liquor license for small Pennsylvania distilleries, was amended without fanfare in the Senate to include a potpourri of changes to the state liquor code. The Senate approved the amended version 40-9 and the House followed suit a short time later, 170-32. Gov. Tom Corbett plans to sign the bill, spokesman Gary Miller said.

HAGERSTOWN -- Richard Graceson, 64, remembers when a bottle of Coke cost 10 cents, a price that has risen with time, but a new tax threatens to increase the price of both soft drinks and alcoholic beverages. The U.S. Senate Finance Committee is considering raising taxes on alcohol and imposing a new levy on soda and other naturally sweetened drinks to help pay for overhauling health care. "I would agree with (raising the taxes)," Graceson said. "The way health care is now, they have to do something about it. " Graceson said his doctors have told him to cut back on the amount of soft drinks he consumes daily, but that advice has not quenched his thirst.
