Is Alcohol to Go, Here to Stay?

The chamber signed off on House Bill 1024 to make beer, wine and mixed drinks to continue to be included in pickup and delivery food orders. It still requires approval from the Senate, however.

Governor Greg Abbott and restauranteurs had a shared goal to secure the revenue stream created over the last year in an effort to help businesses that had to close dining rooms due to Covid.

The bill must now head to the Senate committee where it must be approved before it can be considered by the full chamber.

The original waiver signed last March by Governor Abbott to allow “to-go” alcohol sales, was set to expire last May, but it was extended indefinitely.

As Texas’ lawmakers began “their” legislative session, expanding access to booze picked up bipartisan support.
