HARRISBURG, Pa. (CBS) — The Pennsylvania House has passed a bill that would allow some restaurants and bars to sell prepared alcoholic beverages and mixed drinks to go, along with their takeout food. Alcohol-to-go sales would be a temporary measure to help restaurants survive during the coronavirus pandemic.

To-go drinks can’t be larger than 64 ounces and holes for straws must be covered with a seal.

The bill now advances to the Senate.
