San Luis Obispo County bargoers who’ve dreamed of carousing until 4 a.m. could get the nightcap they’ve been waiting for.
State Sen. Scott Wiener, D-San Francisco, has proposed the Let Our Communities Adjust Late Night Act, which would allow municipalities to set their own last-call times, according to the Los Angeles Times.
California law currently sets last call at 2 a.m., but Wiener’s bill would allow cities to move their closing times as late as 4 a.m.
“Nightlife matters a lot, culturally and economically,” Wiener wrote on his Facebook page, “and it’s time to allow local communities more flexibility.”
Never miss a local story.
It isn’t the first time such legislation has been proposed in California.
In 2013, former state Sen. Mark Leno attempted to give cities more freedom in setting last-call times, but his proposal failed to get enough votes to move out of committee, according to The Associated Press.
