Lansing, Mich. (AP) — Michigan lawmakers are looking to extend on-site alcohol sales from the current 2 a.m. last call to 4 a.m. in an effort to help bars and restaurants recover from financial loss during the pandemic.

Bill sponsor Rep. Ryan Berman testified in front of a state House committee last week.

He said having the extension ready to go once the state’s 10 p.m. curfew on indoor dining due to the coronavirus would allow those with different schedules than a 9 to 5 to add business to bars.
