Los Angeles City Council Opposes State Bill to Allow 4am Bar Time

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Los Angeles City Council has voted to pass a resolution opposing the so-called “Last Call Bill” that would allow bars to stay open until 4 a.m. in select California cities.

KABC-TV reports councilmembers on Tuesday voted 10-2 to oppose the measure that’s still working its way through the California legislature.

The bill, SB58, would let bars extend their operating hours in 10 cities including Los Angeles, Long Beach and West Hollywood. Existing laws prohibit the sale of alcohol between 2 a.m. and 6 a.m.


Councilman Paul Koretz, who authored the resolution, said he’s concerned about the effect on public safety.

Supporters of the bill said it could be locally regulated and enforced and bring the city more revenue.
