HARRISBURG, Pa. (CBS) – Governor Tom Corbett is expected to sign a bill now heading to his desk that would allow Pennsylvania bars and restaurants to use their weekly allotment of “Happy Hours” in a more flexible way.

The bill passed by the House and sent to the governor will still limit the total number of Happy Hours to 14 a week, but establishments could now have up to four hours a day instead of only two.

Philadelphia Republican John Taylor, chairman of the House Liquor Control Committee, says, “If you have a Happy Hour during the Eagles game or Monday Night Football, I mean, two hours just doesn’t do it for you to keep your audience.”

The bill also allows licensees to sell alcohol when catering events off premises. And it will make selling beer that isn’t properly registered a bureaucratic matter, so that the situation that occurred a few years ago, when several Philadelphia bars were raided by state police, doesn’t occur again.

Meanwhile, Taylor’s committee this week approved a bill that would allow more state stores to be open on Sundays, but he says that measure is not likely to get a full House vote anytime soon.
