MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - The state Assembly has voted to legalize "pedal pubs" -- vehicles that roll from tavern to tavern in places like downtown Milwaukee, where riders can drink while pedaling with their feet.
Milwaukee officials say drinking on the pedal pubs violates a state law which bans the use of alcohol in vehicles.
Assembly Republican Jeff Stone of Greendale responded with a bill to let Wisconsin communities allow drinking on pedal pubs.
The Assembly Small Business Committee later took the decision out of the municipalities' hands by allowing pedal pub drinking unless a local ordinance is passed to ban it.
That's the measure now pedaling through the Legislature. Next stop is the Senate.
