MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — A bill in the West Virginia legislature would allow police to enter private clubs and bars that are open to the public.

“The current enforcement is ridiculous,” Fleischauer said.
The ABCC can revoke the licenses of establishments that do not meet compliance, such as by serving alcohol to minors.
