California State Senate Approves Bill Allowing Bars To Serve Alcohol Until 4 AM

San Francisco-based Senator Scott Wiener introduced a bill back in February that would allow California bars to serve alcohol until 4 AM.

The goal of the bill is to stimulate the state’s economy and make California cities bigger tourist attractions.

In March, it took a big step forward:

A similar bill proposed in 2013 did not receive enough votes to pass and was opposed by a nonprofit advocacy group called Alcohol Justice and by the San Francisco Police Officers Association. Wiener’s bill has passed committee, which the 2013 bill did not do.

Last week, the bill advanced from the Senate Appropriations Committee and today it was approved by the state Senate.

The bill will now move to the state assembly for a review and vote before it can be put on the governor’s desk.
