Pedal-pub issue rolls through the legislature

A Milwaukee area legislator wants to legalize "pedal pubs" - vehicles in which a number of partiers pedal and drink as they travel from bar to bar.

They've been popping up around the country, and Milwaukee had one until a city committee pointed out that it went against a state law against drinking in vehicles.

Now, state Assembly Republican Jeff Stone of Greendale is proposing a bill to allow the pedal pubs throughout Wisconsin and let the riders drink. But the navigators would have to limit their blood alcohol content to .02 percent or lower.
