COLUMBUS—The Ohio House of Representatives passed a bill Wednesday that would make the sale of to-go alcoholic beverages a permanent thing throughout the state.
H.B. 669 needs to be approved by the state senate before moving to the governor’s desk for signature into law.
In April, Governor DeWine issued an executive order that allowed establishments with liquor licenses to sell and deliver drinks, including ones containing high proof liquor as a way to help ease the burden on restaurants during the COVID-19 shutdown.
The rules were no more than two drinks per meal were allowed.
Alcoholic beverages to-go may be a permanent fixture in the state of Ohio for establishments that carry liquor licenses.
