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.

    What a truly sad state we are in when people cannot wait until noon, one day of the week, to buy alcohol. All the time, efforts, and money spent on writing and pushing this bill – would have been better spent on solutions to our crime and public school issues.

    I learned to make White Lightning or Moonshine in SPSM/The Department of Corrections. I became noted by corn , potatoes and barley recipe alcohol (i.e. scotch, gin, vodka, beer,…)
    I don’t have a state liquor license, however I’am a politivcal activist among US Presidents, US Senators State Governors and Lt. Governors.

    your 1st problem is that you assume. which leads to making an a&$ of yourself.

    so… not everyone works a traditional 9-5, mon-fri schedule.
    for some sunday morning is actually the equivalent of “friday night” which can lead to it being partytime, or sippin time, or what have you.

    the point is: why not allow revenue to be made for this state when everyone is so concerned with creating jobs and the economy overall. there has to be 20 liquor stores within 5 miles of my home, thats potentially $160 x 20 right back into the economy which sounds wonderful to me after my drive into work over the maze of potholes en route.

    just my opinion. but a darn good one i feel along with the thousands of night shifters. respect it.
