Indiana Senate OKs carryout Sunday alcohol sales bill

The Indiana Senate has approved a measure that would repeal the state's ban on Sunday carryout alcohol sales.

The bill by Ron Alting, R-Lafayette, passed Monday on a 39-10 vote. It moves to the House, which is expected to vote soon on its own Sunday sales proposal.

Both measures would allow stores to sell carryout alcohol on Sundays between noon and 8 p.m.

Similar bills have stalled in recent years.

Separate legislation that would have allowed convenience stores, big box retailers and pharmacies to sell cold—and not just warm—beer faced a different fate. It was voted down in committee last week.

Selling cold carryout beer is a right primarily enjoyed by liquor stores.
