City officials are asking the Mississippi legislature to give Philadelphia qualified resort status to help tourism officials attract national chain restaurants, and allow all establishments in the city to serve win and liquor by the glass.

A similar bill died in the legislature in 2010.

Mayor James Young says a study shows that over 12 million dollars in restaurant revenue leaves Philadelphia every year.
