Herald Endorses Restaurant Rejuvenation Act

The Boston Herald is backing the Restaurant Rejuvenation Act, which would allow Massachusetts restaurants to serve alcoholic beverages with Sunday brunch beginning at 10 a.m., two hours earlier than current law allows.

Senate Minority Leader Richard Tisei recently filed the bill with bi-partisan support at the request of the Phantom Gourmet's Dave Andelman, who says it will deliver much-needed jobs and revenues for local businesses. Last month, the House adopted the language during its Fiscal Year 2011 budget debate.

In endorsing the proposal, the Boston Herald notes that "the hospitality business has suffered enormously during this fiscal crisis, and this is the kind of obstacle to business improvement that Beacon Hill should be happy to remove."
