Campaign Launched To Stop California SB 635 That Would Extend Last Call At Bars, Restaurants And Nightclubs To 4 A.m.









LOS ANGELES, April 6, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- According to Alcohol Justice, community organizations concerned with public health and safety have joined the statewide coalition to STOP Leno's 4 a.m. Bar Bill.  They will be joined by police chiefs and Los Angeles city council members Monday at a Los Angeles City Hall press event to launch their campaign and support Council Member Bernard Parks' resolution to oppose passage of SB 635. The bill, authored by Senator Mark Leno (D- San Francisco) would make it possible for any California bar, restaurant or nightclub to extend drinking hours from 2 a.m. to 4 a.m.

  • Crystal Cedillo, Community Organizer Koreatown Youth and Community Center 

Why: 

  • Extending hours of on-site alcohol sales into the wee hours of the morning will benefit a few bar, restaurant and nightclub owners, as well as alcohol producers and distributors, while increasing alcohol-related harms and costs at public expense
  • Evidence shows that two more hours of alcohol sales will nearly double alcohol-related violence, crime, police calls, emergency room visits, etc.
  • California already suffers $38.4 billion a year in alcohol-related harm, with local and state governments paying $8 billion annually
  • Alcohol-related deaths in California top 10,000 per year with over 900,000 alcohol-related incidents of harm (crimes, injuries, high-risk sex, etc.)
  • The last time the California alcohol excise tax was increased was in 1992
  • State, city and county public health and safety providers do not have the resources to mitigate the current alcohol-related economic and social harms, so who will cover the damages of two more hours of late-night alcohol consumption?
  • Taxpayers will pick up the bloody tab for Leno's bar bill
