New Law Clarifies Michigan’s Sunday Liquor Sales
LANSING (AP) – Governor Rick Snyder has signed a law that makes a technical fix to Michigan’s statute related to Sunday morning liquor sales.
The revised law makes it clear that communities may opt out of Sunday alcohol sales for just the morning or all day, depending on their preference.
A drafting oversight in the original law adopted last year would have forced communities to allow Sunday alcohol sales all day or not at all.
But the Michigan Liquor Control Commission had allowed communities to opt out of Sunday morning sales since the law was adopted.
Snyder says the new bill he announced signing Monday lets local government leaders decide what’s best for their communities related to alcohol sales.
Michigan began allowing Sunday morning alcohol sales late last year.
