Hochul vows to bring back alcohol-to-go program in New York


Governor Kathy Hochul wants to reinstate the “alcohol-to-go” program that permits restaurants and bars to sell boozy beverages to-go, she announced during her State of the State address Wednesday, Jan. 5. 

The governor plans to introduce legislation to permanently legalize a temporary pandemic-era measure that let businesses sell booze from their storefronts and for delivery across the state, which expired last June.
