Somerset County may change its regulations limiting the place of businesses that sell alcohol.

Currently they cannot be within three hundred feet from a church, school, public library or youth center.

But a measure awaiting action of the governor would reduce that to 200 feet.

The legislation allowing the easing of the restriction was introduced by Delegate Charles Otto and State Senator Mary Beth Carozza.
