Senate OKs Pineville's request for alcohol vote

Citizens of Pineville are closer to being able to vote on whether to allow restaurants in their city to sell alcohol.
The Town Talk reports a bill that would allow the city to call an election on the "restaurant only" option cleared the Louisiana Senate by a 24-0 vote Thursday.
The bill now goes to the House of Representatives and, if it passes there, to Gov. Bobby Jindal for his signature.
City officials are hoping to get a proposition on the ballot in October.
All alcohol sales are currently prohibited in Pineville.
