Indiana keeps Sunday carry-out alcohol ban

Feb. 13, 2013 at 5:19 PM   |   Comments

INDIANAPOLIS, Feb. 13 (UPI) -- An Indiana legislator said Wednesday he will not move a bill this year to allow package sales of alcohol on Sundays.

The decision by Bill Davis, chairman of the House public policy committee, means the Legislature will almost certainly not vote on the issue for at least a year, The Indianapolis Star reported. Lobbyists for liquor stores favor keeping the ban on Sunday sales in place, arguing a change would benefit large supermarket chains.

The law has been contentious for years but efforts to overturn it have so far been ineffective.
