Lawmakers review later closing time for Colo. bars

DENVER — Colorado cities and towns could have the power to extend bar hours under a proposal from state lawmakers.

A bill getting its first hearing in a House committee Wednesday would let municipalities decide whether to allow bars to stay open past 2 a.m. Current law prohibits the sale of alcohol from 2 a.m. to 7 a.m.

Democratic Rep. Crisanta Duran, one of the lawmakers sponsoring the bill, says the purpose is to give local governments more discretion to set the times when bars can sell alcohol.
