House Regulated Industries Committee Passes Sunday Alcohol Sales Bill

The Associated Press reports this morning that the House Reulated Industries Committee passed its version of a bill that would allow Georgians to decide whether they want to allow the sales of alcoholic beverages on Sunday in their local city or county.

A House panel has approved a bill that would pave the way for stores in Georgia to sell alcohol on Sundays.

The House Regulated Industries Committee approved the measure Wednesday. A similar bill has already cleared a key Senate panel. Gov. Nathan Deal has said he'll sign the legislation.

The race is now on to see which chamber, the House or the Senate, will pass the Sunday sales bill first.

Senate Bill 10 awaits a vote from the full Senate. House Bill 69 awaits a vote from the full House.

First past the post wins.
