Milwaukee "Pedal Pub" owner hopes to be back in business after legislature approval

MILWAUKEE, WI (WTAQ) - The owners of a "pedal pub" in Milwaukee hope to be back on the street by Saint Patrick's Day. 

On Tuesday, the Wisconsin Senate sent Governor Scott Walker a bill to legalize "pedal pubs" for those communities that want to allow them. 

It's a type of bus which the driver steers, and partiers pedal down a street while drinking. 

Milwaukee had the "Pedal Tavern" until the city shut it down last year. 

Former Assembly Republican Jeff Stone had the Legislature vote to allow them with community support.  Both houses passed the measure. 

Milwaukee's Pedal Tavern gave folks a chance to party while heading from bar-to-bar in the city's popular Water Street district. 

One of the pub's owners, Ryan Lloyd, praised the bill's passage.  He said the party vehicles are good for his company and good for Milwaukee tourism.
