McDonnell will unveil ABC proposal Sept. 8, vote postponed until October

Anita Kumar

Gov. Bob McDonnell (R) will unveil his plan to privatize the state's liquor system Sept. 8 when a subcommittee of his government reform committee meets. The subcommittee will officially vote on the proposal.

The full government reform commission was scheduled to vote on the proposal Sept. 13 but that has been pushed off until Oct. 4.

The commission will meet Sept. 13 to consider a slew of other ideas to reform government.

McDonnell is leaning toward auctioning off an undetermined number of licenses to the highest bidders.

He plans to call legislators back for a special session this year to address privatization of liquor stores and other government reform measures.
