HARRISBURG — Gov. Tom Corbett is expected to call for auctioning off wine and liquor store licenses and opening beer sales to a broad array of retailers including supermarkets and convenience stores, according to information from people briefed by the governor's office Tuesday.

The plan would dramatically liberalize the sale of alcoholic beverages in Pennsylvania and throw out Prohibition-era limitations that have thus far withstood the efforts of three straight Republican governors.

Corbett's office said the Republican governor will announce his plan this afternoon in a Pittsburgh state office building.

His spokesman, Kevin Harley, declined to comment on the details.
