Californians Push for 4AM Last Call With Newly Launched Petition

When does your party end?

Frequenters of the nightlife scene in California have been keeping their eyes on a bill passing through their government for months now. Proposed by California Senator Scott Wiener, the “LOCAL (Let Our Communities Adjust Late Night) Act”, would give communities the opportunity to extend their last call hours to 4AM.

Now, a petition is being filed by Californians to help the bill gain traction. The petition highlights the fact that it’s optional for communities to extend last call, and that they have the ability to opt-out. It also enforces that fact that by extending last call, local government would see an increase in tax revenue, tourism, and support of nightlife in the cities that chose to opt-in.

Most recently, the bill has passed through the Senate. It now needs to make its way through the California Assembly and then onto the Governor to finalize it.

Without a doubt, this would be a major win for the nightlife hot spots in California like Los Angeles, San Diego, and San Francisco. If you’re interested in supporting the petition, feel free to sign it here.
