Gov Close To Decision On Sunday Morning Liquor Sales

drinking beer Gov Close To Decision On Sunday Morning Liquor SalesMichigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm says she’s “very close” to deciding if she’ll sign a bill that would allow Sunday morning liquor sales.

The governor has pushed for the change in past years. But she said Monday a few technical issues must be resolved before she decides whether to make it law.

Under the new measure, alcohol sales could start at 7 a.m. on Sunday. That’s a change from the current law banning them from 2 a.m. to noon.

Sellers would have to pay an extra $160 for a special license, which would permit sales up to 2 a.m. Monday.

The bill also expands options for wine and beer-tasting functions and having alcoholic drinks at catered events.
