Businesses in New Orleans are going to see new regulations on liquor licenses following a vote by City Council last night.
The new rules passed by a 5-1 vote after a heated debate and a revision process that took almost a year.
Supporters of the new regulations say they will remove archaic, racist, and gender-biased language from the rules that govern businesses that sell alcohol in the city while tying tax liability to property owners.
Opponents criticized the tax issue saying it was unfair to shut down alcohol sales at law-abiding bars and restaurants because a third-party landlord had not paid their taxes.
