Indiana Getting Closer to Sunday Alcohol Sales After Bills Pass Committees
Those who have been clamoring for Indiana to FINALLY sell alcohol on Sundays are one step closer to getting their wish after a bill aimed at allowing sales is passed unanimously by a Senate Committee.
According to Tri-State Homepage, the Committee passed the bill 9-0 which means it will now move to the Senate floor for discussion by the remaining members of the legislature.
If approved by Congress, the bill would allow sales to take place on Sundays between Noon and 8:00 p.m.
A similar bill also been proposed in the Indiana House of Representatives, and is expected to be voted on by a House Committee sometime next week. Committee Chair, Representative Ben Smaltz (Republican - Auburn), expressed confidence to reporters the bill would have little trouble passing the Committee.
While neither passing means Sunday sales are a done deal, it likely means there is enough support from both parties in the House and Senate to make it a reality in the future.
Personally, I would have no problem with this happening. While I'm not a heavy drinker by any stretch, sometimes you want to open a beer while enjoying a lazy Sunday around the house, and if you don't have any because you didn't think about it on Saturday, you're out of luck. Essentially, I'm in favor of it for the convenience. Is that a terrible reason? Possibly. But, to each their own, right?
