According to the Villager, Daniel Squadron (the anti-nightlife senator last seen trying to tighten up the 200-feet rule) has succeeded in sending a bill to Governor Paterson that would strip bars of their liquor licenses if police are called at least six times in two months for excessive noise or disorderly conduct, regardless of whether the owners are directly culpable (currently, the NYPD usually stick to more serious offenses, such as drug busts, when referring matters to the State Liquor Authority). And this, folks, is why nightlife didn’t want the former bar owner elected.
