HARRISBURG, Pa., March 8, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board today announced the return of approximately $2.3 million in licensing fees to nearly 1,200 municipalities where licensees are located. 

The PLCB oversees the regulation of more than 17,000 liquor licenses and permits state-wide, including restaurants, clubs and beer distributors.  As part of their annual renewal or license validation, licensees and permitees pay a fee ranging from $125 to $700, based on the type of license and population of the municipality in which the license is located. As required by law, the PLCB returns the fees to those municipalities twice a year.

Municipalities in each of Pennsylvania's 67 counties receive funds ranging from $25.00 to more than $1 million biannually, depending on the number of licensees located in their area.
