New Michigan legislation would let bars serve alcohol until 4 a.m.

(WXYZ) - A new bill just introduced to the Michigan legislature would let some bars and restaurants serve alcohol until 4 a.m.

The bill would allow downtown establishments with an extended hours permit to serve alcohol later. Currently, bars and restaurants are required to stop selling alcohol from 2 a.m. to 7 a.m. 

The application for the permit would include a $10,000 yearly fee. 

Most of the money received from the permits would go toward city police departments.
