The New York State Senate passed a bill Tuesday to enhance the tourism industry.

The bill would allow bed and breakfasts to sell alcohol.

State Senator Rich Funke from New York's 55th District sponsored the bill.

Funke wants bed and breakfasts to be on par with the full liquor license that hotels can currently apply for in New York.

The measure would also allow licensed beer, cider and wine farms can also become a bed and breakfast. Tourists would not need to stay overnight to buy or be served alcohol.
