PIERRE, SD -
The South Dakota Legislature has given final approval to a measure easing restrictions on wine in restaurants.
The bill would allow people to take their own bottles of wine to restaurants.
People also could take an unfinished bottle of wine home with them, as long as the restaurant had placed the bottle in a special sealed bag.
The House voted unanimously Tuesday to pass the bill, which had been approved earlier by the Senate. The measure will become law if signed by Gov. Dennis Daugaard.
