Governor Andrew Cuomo’s proposal to allow alcohol into movie theaters has received a setback.

Both the Senate and Assembly budgets have omitted any language pertaining to the change.

Senator Rich Funke’s office said while Funke does not oppose the measure there was concern over the language in Cuomo’s proposal and lawmakers wanted to take more time to add clarity, which means it could be added to the budget in the coming weeks.

The Senate approved its version of the budget Wednesday.
