Sunday Liquor Sale Bill Up For Hearing Soon

A bill that would end a seven decade-plus old ban on Sunday liquor sales in Colorado will soon be considered by a Senate committee.

SB 82, sponsored by Sen. Jennifer Viega, D-Denver, is a reprise of a similar bill floated three years ago. However, according to a report in the Rocky Mountain News, the coalition of independent liquor store owners that opposed it then is now willing to support the change in state law.

A hearing on the bill will soon be scheduled by the Senate Business, Labor & Technology Committee.
