Lawmaker proposes to let bars stay open until 4 a.m.

Posted: Updated:
SAGINAW, MI (WNEM) -

For years, last call for alcohol has been 2 a.m. throughout the state, but soon, you could be able to throw back a cold one until 4 a.m.

A Detroit lawmaker wants bars and restaurants in central business districts to be able to stay open later.

But if the bill is approved, business would need to pay $10,000 per year for a special "after hours" permit.

What are your thoughts? Do you think Michigan should allow bars to serve alcohol after 2 a.m.? Vote in our poll at the bottom of this story.
