BATON ROUGE- A law change was introduced at the city's Metro Council meeting Wednesday, to allow alcohol sales 24/7 at some establishments.

The ordinance would allow riverboat casinos to get a special license to sell after other bars are required to close.

The item will eventually be available for public discussion where citizens can voice their thoughts on the issue.

This is the second time in about four months that alcohol laws have been discussed. In November, city leaders agreed to change the operating hours of bars. Now, Sunday sales aren't as strict.

Current law requires alcohol sales end at 2 a.m. Monday- Saturday and by midnight on Sundays.
