Iowa House passes alcohol to-go bill
Iowa lawmakers on Tuesday passed a bill that would allow restaurants to continue selling alcohol to-go.
The measure, which was passed by the Iowa House, is intended to help struggling restaurants keep that revenue flowing in.
During the coronavirus pandemic, restaurants were able to offer carry-out alcoholic beverages while their dining areas remained closed.
Alcohol – including mixed drinks – could continue to be taken to-go out of bars and restaurants under the new bill.
