Illinois House, Senate Pass To-Go Cocktails Bill

The Illinois House and Senate have passed legislation allowing restaurants and bars to sell cocktails to-go.  Those backing the proposal say it could help save businesses with liquor licenses as well as jobs.  Some members of the law enforcement community oppose the measure, despite aspects of the proposal that would place labeled drinks in tamper-proof sealed containers out of the reach of drivers.  The Illinois Liquor Control Commission has expressed safety and sanitation concerns with the idea.
