House, Senate committees take up Sunday booze sales bills

Indiana Looks to Finally End Prohibition Era Restriction on Sunday Alcohol Sales House, Senate committees take up Sunday booze sales bills

IN is one step closer to allowing Hoosiers to purchase alcohol on Sundays at stores. That measure now heads to the full Senate.

SB 26 is assigned to the Senate Committee on Public Policy where it will receive a hearing Wednesday, Jan. 17 at noon.

State Senator Ron Alting (R-Lafayette) said, "If you notice, there's no one fighting in the halls, there's no one fighting in here".

After testimony, his Sunday alcohol sales bill zipped forward by a vote of 9-0. I hope we can focus on updating these laws in a way that supports entrepreneurs and employers, while also maintaining strong public health and safety protections. "That's also been the death of these good bills like this". He says the bill limits Sunday sales to noon-to-eight p-m, so the state can assess those impacts before widening the sales window any further.

Kroger said the additional few hours are important to its customers.

As for any benefits to the retail council, Monahan pointed out that Sunday is the second busiest day of the week and that IN typically loses $12 million a year IN sales and excise taxes as residents drive across state lines on Sundays to shop for alcohol and other items.

Wednesday, both bills took a big step.

The Indiana House Committee on Public Policy did not vote on the bill today but plans to do so next week.

"Anything can happen in this process when it comes out the Committee".

"This past year Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve both fell on a Sunday and those are two very busy days for us so I think a lot of retailers kind of had a little bit of a change of heart", said Errol Rousseve from City Wide Liquor's Mishawaka store.

Smaltz said he expects a Committee vote on his Sunday Sales bill sometime next week.

Convenience stores didn't testify on the bill, but are continuing their pursuit of cold-beer sales despite the supermarkets' withdrawal of support.

Liquor stores have fought Sunday sales for years, predicting as many as a quarter of IN liquor stores could go out of business. Sunday sales, he believes, stand "a pretty decent chance" of gaining legislative approval. The state now limits carryout sales of cold beer to liquor stores and some restaurants. "We are eager to continue working directly with legislators and policy makers as these landmark pieces of legislation continue to move forward without delay".
