Mike Jennings owner of Scoreboard Bar and Grill spoke during a news conference at the State Capitol. Republican Rep. Jon Koznick spoke on behalf of restaurant owners being allowed to sale wine and beer during food order takeout sales Monday April 13, 2020 in St. Paul, MN.

A group of Minnesota legislators is calling on Gov. Tim Walz to allow restaurants to sell takeaway wine and beer, a move they say could boost sales and preserve jobs in an industry hit hard by the global coronavirus pandemic.

Restaurants and bars in the state have been closed to dine-in customers since March 17 and will remain closed until at least May 4 following the governor's order to limit the spread of the virus. They can still do delivery or takeout food orders, but takeaway alcohol is not expressly allowed under the order.
