Sunday Alcohol Sales Headed To The House Floor

A bid to allow Sunday alcohol sales is headed to the House floor, but with proposed new restrictions that have prompted the two sides of the issue to swap positions. Supermarkets have long sought to legalize Sunday sales, but they‘re denouncing an addition to the bill that would segregate the beer and wine section, and put hard liquor behind the counter. Liquor stores who have fought Sunday sales are embracing it now that it's a reasonable way to keep alcohol away from minors. The House Public Policy Committee, voting 10-2 Wednesday, made history as the first to approve the perennial legislative proposal. Again, it now goes to the full House.
