Sunday Liquor Sales Gets Initial Backing From Senate

A proposal to allow liquor stores to open on Sundays is moving ahead at the state capitol. The senate gave initial approval to the bill Friday with no debate.

That’s a big change from previous attempts to change the state's Blue Laws. Three years ago, opposition was so strong that the proposal never made it to the senate floor.

More liquor store owners support Sunday sales this time. They see it as an alternative to allowing supermarkets to sell full-strength beer and wine. The supermarket bill was killed last week after liquor store owners packed the hearing room in opposition.

The Sunday-sales bill must still pass another vote in the senate
before moving to the house.
