LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) Bars in California are considering changing last call from 2 a.m. to a more party hearty 4 a.m.
A bill just passed by the California Senate would give local communities the chance to keep the party going.

At Trunks in West Hollywood, support for the bill is pouring in.
“I think it’s a great idea for businesses, as a bartender, I could make a lot more money,” mix-master Trevor Lapaglia.
But some homes located near bars aren’t that keen on the idea of extended hours.
