No Later Last Call
California State Capitol
Sacramento, CA - A push for a later last call in California has been cut off. The Associated Press reports California lawmakers have rejected a bill that would have permitted bartenders to serve drinks until 4 a.m. That is two hours later than the current last call for alcohol.
State Senator Mark Leno says the extended hours would draw tourists, create jobs and help California cities compete with areas that serve alcohol all night long. He also argued it would boost local tax revenues benefiting many communities. In the end, the measure didn't get enough votes in the Senate committee Tuesday.
