Lawmaker: “New York restaurants need alcohol to go,” as COVID winter surge creates stress

The hospitality industry in New York is hopeful that the ‘alcohol to-go’ policy that was launched in the early-days of the pandemic will return.

The measure expired in June, but now restaurant owners are hoping that it makes a comeback.

A bill was proposed to make the rule permanent in January 2021. However, it never made it to the floor for a full-vote.

There’s growing optimism that the measure will become permanent. Especially after other states, like Florida and Texas, made the sale of alcohol to go permanent because it helped businesses.

The proposal received support from both Democrats and Republicans.
