A bill that a Danbury lawmaker has pushed for for years has finally been approved during the recently completed regular General Assembly session and signed into law by Governor Ned Lamont. The measure allows for self-pour alcohol machines.
Danbury Representative David Arconti says the idea was first brought to him by the Greater Danbury Chamber of Commerce on behalf of businesses that were intrigued by the idea.
An employee of the establishment would check for ID, the patron would pay for a certain number of ounces and be handed a pour pass card. They can then get their allotted amount from the self-pour machines, which are already legal in 45 other states.
