Senator Wiener and Assemblymember Haney’s Statement on SB 930 Not Passing the Assembly

August 24, 2022

SACRAMENTO –  Senator Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco) and Assemblymember Matt Haney’s (D-San Francisco) released the following statement after SB 930, their legislation that would’ve allowed San Francisco, Palm Springs and West Hollywood to extend sales of alcohol at bars, nightclubs, and restaurants to as late as 4am on weekends and 3 am during the week, died in the Assembly:

"Senate Bill 930 is a limited pilot program to allow 3 cities — each of which asked to be included — to work with local stakeholders, including law enforcement, to decide locally whether to extend nightlife hours. SB 930 is a local control bill that lets cities decide what nightlife works best for their communities and small businesses. We are disappointed that SB 930 came up short on votes today on the Assembly floor after a series of misleading speeches by members representing areas that would not have been impacted by the bill.  We are assessing whether there is a path to pass the bill off the Assembly floor.”
