HARRISBURG, Pa. — Pennsylvania restaurants, struggling because of the coronavirus pandemic, would be able to serve to-go cocktails under a new bill.

The legislation, passed by the Pennsylvania House of Representatives in April and the Senate of Wednesday, would allow restaurants and stores with R- and H-licenses who have lost 25% or more of their business during the COVID-19 outbreak, to sell the to-go cocktails.
