The leading proposal to get Virginia out of the liquor business is calling for privatizing retail and wholesale operations, and auctioning licenses to distributors and sellers of spirits.
Under that plan, Virginia could issue 500 to 800 licenses across the state according to a distribution formula, the governor’s senior policy adviser, Eric Finkbeiner, told lobbyists, lawmakers and others at a meeting of the state government reform and restructuring commission.
That would be a marked increase from the 332 Alcoholic Beverage Control stores Virginia now operates.
