The bill, SB 698, allows alcohol licenses to the owners of railroad stations used for passenger service between two or more cities.

The legislation was pushed by Brightline, which will soon provide All Aboard Florida passenger rail service from Orlando to Miami, with stops in Ft. Lauderdale and West Palm Beach.
