Bosma unsure about future of Sunday alcohol sales bill

February 6, 2015

The leader of the Indiana House of Representatives isn’t making any predictions on the fate of a proposal to legalize Sunday carryout alcohol sales.

The House Public Policy Committee has scheduled a public hearing on the measure at 9 a.m. Wednesday in the House Chamber. House Bill 1624 would end Indiana’s status as the only state prohibiting retail carryout sales of beer, wine and liquor on Sundays.

Republican House Speaker Brian Bosma said he didn’t know whether the proposal will reach the full House for a vote or whether it would have enough support to win passage.

The bill would allow groceries, pharmacies and liquor stores to sell alcohol on Sundays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Other Sunday alcohol sales proposals have failed to advance in the Legislature in recent years.
