A newly proposed legislation by a California state senator would extend alcohol service at bars and night clubs till 4 a.m.
Senator Mark Leno (D-Sacramento) authored SB 635, a bill that aims to amend California’s current law that says alcoholic beverages can only be sold between 6 a.m. to 2 a.m.
Leno said the bill would allow California cities to compete for tourist dollars with cities and states that currently have extended alcohol service hours. He added that it will also create more job opportunities.
SB 635, is supported by the California Restaurant Association, Golden Gate Restaurant Association, California Music and Culture
Association and San Francisco Council of District Merchants. It will be heard in Senate policy committees this spring, according to reports from CBS13 Sacramento.
