According to the Sacramento Bee, State Senator Scott Wiener has introduced a bill that will allow, but not require, six California cities to keep businesses open and serving alcohol until 4 a.m.
The six cities that were proposed to get extended hour are Sacramento, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Oakland, West Hollywood, and Long Beach.
Scott Wiener’s goal with this bill is to boost the state’s economy through it’s nightlife.
If the bill does pass, each of the cities would have to develop and implement a planning process involving law enforcement, public safety plans, and transportation.

Today we announced our new bill to allow six cities to decide locally whether to extend bar and nightclub hours until 4 am. Here I am chatting with @heklina and @honeymahogany about why the bill matters for nightlife. The six cities are Los Angeles, San Francisco, Oakland, Sacramento, Long Beach, and West Hollywood. Each city would decide locally whether to extend hours, in which parts of their city to do so, and on what nights. Pure local control. Let’s make California nightlife as good as it can be!
While the bill has faced some criticism, it has also received bipartisan support from other lawmakers.
