Pennsylvania bed-and-breakfast operators could give complimentary bottles of wine to their paying guests under a bill that passed the state House.
Lawmakers approved the measure yesterday without debate by a 200-to-1 vote.
The bill would amend the Pennsylvania liquor code to allow unlicensed B&Bs to provide one bottle of wine produced by a licensed, limited winery to guests when they check in without it being construed as the sale of alcohol.
Representative Scott Petri, a Bucks County Republican who is sponsoring the bill, says it's designed to help Pennsylvania B&Bs compete with their counterparts in other states that advertise wine and champagne giveaways.
The bill would require Senate approval before it is sent to the governor.
