In State News Governor Tom Wolf may now veto a bill he initially supported after it was amended in the PA Senate. The bill which sought to permanently allow bars and restaurants to sell hand-made cocktails to go, now includes a section allowing premixed cocktails in sealed containers to be sold at convenience stores and beer distributers.
