Gov. Hochul Announces Plans To Permanently Legalize Alcohol-To-Go

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- In her State of the State address, Gov. Kathy Hochul announced plans to bring back cocktails-to-go.

As part of her small business recovery plan, the governor wants to permanently legalize the sale of takeout drinks.

The very popular policy was enacted in 2020 to help struggling bars and restaurants at the height of the pandemic. It expired this past June.

The measure will require a change in law from the state legislature.
