NH Senate to vote on bill to push back last call

Posted: Updated:

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - Granite State bar patrons hoping to join neighboring states in being able to belly-up to the bar in the wee hours for a final round could see some daylight as the Senate will vote on a bill this week to push back last call from 1 a.m. to 2 a.m.

If the Senate passes its version of the bill, local governing bodies for New Hampshire's cities and towns would need to opt into the law change by passing an ordinance allowing bars in their municipality to serve alcohol later.

That might be an easy sell in larger cities like Manchester and Nashua, but it could also lead to some heated debate at town meeting in some of the state's smaller communities.
