Main Street Alliance: Wisconsin celebrates passage of assembly bill 32, “cocktails to go”

The Main Street Alliance congratulates and thanks the Wisconsin State Assembly for passage of Assembly Bill 32, the “Cocktails to Go” legislation which will help our members generate additional revenue after an extremely difficult year in the restaurant industry.

We appreciate the efforts of other organizations, in addition to our own, in the restaurant and food service industry who helped get this across the finish line. 

We especially want to thank Sen. Stroebel, Rep. Swearingen, Rep. Steffen, Sen. Felzkowski, Rep. Sinicki, Rep. Brostoff and Sen. Roys for working together on this common sense reform. 

“Restaurants like mine are going to be helped tremendously by this,” said Dan Jacobs, owner of Dan Dan and other restaurants in the Milwaukee area. 

“While we are getting shots in the arm because of the top of the nation vaccine efforts of the Governor, health care professionals and local officials, this bill will be a shot in the arm for our business to be able to begin to recover from the pandemic.”

“The job isn’t done, though, and we need the Senate to act next week to send this bill to Gov. Evers desk so we can focus on what we do best.” 

MSA-WI calls on Senator Stroebel and Senator Devin Lemahieu to schedule a vote as soon as possible.
