Indiana legislators look into an end of the ban on Sunday retail alcohol sales

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- Some Indiana legislators are looking into an end of the ban on retail alcohol sales on Sunday.

Indiana is the last state in the country to have such a ban.  The House Public Policy Committee is taking up that topic this morning.  Right now only restaurants, bars, breweries, and wineries can sell alcohol on Sundays in Indiana.

Those supporting the change say Sunday carryout alcohol sales would mean more tax money for the state, and that it would be more convenient for customers.  But liquor store owners oppose Sunday liquor sales.  They say it would mean more overhead for them and that they would have to compete with grocery stores that are already open seven days a week.
