Calif. Lawmakers Reject Bill That Would Have Extended Last Call At Bars, Clubs To 4 A.M.

SACRAMENTO (CBSLA.com) — State lawmakers rejected a bill Tuesday that would have extended last call at bars and clubs to 4 a.m.

Sen. Mark Leno (D-San Francisco) said allowing the liquor flow past the usual 2 a.m. hour would have drawn more tourists, as well as increased revenue and jobs.

Bar owners supported the measure, but police said it would increase the chances that cities would see public drunkenness, violence, drunken driving and possible deaths.

Currently, 25 cities outside of California allow liquor to be served until 4 a.m.
