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

The bill by Rep. Ben Smaltz of Auburn passed Tuesday on an 87-10 vote. It heads to the Senate, which passed a virtually identical bill Monday.

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

The support for the bill follows a truce between the package liquor store lobby, represented by the Indiana Association of Beverage Retailers, and retail store lobby, represented by the Indiana Retail Council, following years of fighting between the groups.
