Indiana lawmakers to discuss Sunday alcohol sales ban

Supporters and foes of repealing Indiana’s ban on Sunday take-out alcohol sales plan to make their case before a group
of lawmakers.

They plan to testify this afternoon before the Interim Study Committee on Alcoholic Beverages.

Indiana law currently forbids liquor stores, grocery stores, convenience stores and drug stores from selling liquor,
wine and beer on Sundays. A coalition of grocery stores, convenience stores and drug stores says Sunday alcohol sales should
be allowed, in part because Sunday is the second busiest shopping day of the week.

A group representing liquor
stores opposes the move, saying there is no need for an extra day of alcohol sales.

Indiana already allows some
Sunday alcohol sales in bars, restaurants and sporting events. It’s possible the committee will make a recommendation to
be considered during the legislative session that begins in January.
