ALBANY, N.Y. (WIVB) — Although the executive order allowing restaurants to deliver and serve takeout alcohol was set to expire this weekend, it appears it’s been extended.
With little fanfare, an addition was made to the rules on the State Liquor Authority portion of New York State’s website.
Instead of March 28, the website now lists the expiration date of the order as April 6.
Leaders with the New York Restaurant Association have recently been calling for an extension, and it looks like they’re getting it.
A recent survey conducted by the group said 86 percent of state residents want this executive order to become a permanent fixture.
