Delaware Lawmakers Eye Liquor Licenses for Small Restaurants

Posted: Updated:

DOVER, Del. (AP)- A state House committee is set to consider a bill easing Delaware's laws on restaurants serving alcohol.

Under the current law, a restaurant must have seating for at least 35 people in order to be eligible for a license to sell beer, wine or liquor.

The legislation to be discussed Wednesday changes the definition of restaurants eligible for liquor licenses to include establishments that serve complete meals and provide seating for at least 12 people, not 35.

Supporters say the legislation could help many small businesses across the state become more profitable.
