An executive order is being placed that will prevent bars from losing their liquor licenses if they can't pay local taxes during the coronavirus crisis.

East Baton Rouge Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome signed the order Monday that will temporarily suspend the city-parish's ordinance governing the suspension or revocation of licenses and permits for bars.

The order will suspend the ordinance for the remainder of 2020.
