Ritter to Sign Sunday Liquor Sales Bill

Gov. Bill Ritter will sign Monday a bill allowing liquor stores to remain open on Sundays, according to a report in the Rocky Mountain News.

The governor has held meetings with proponents and opponents of the measure in recent weeks. Grocery and convenience store owners have urged a veto of SB 82.

Colorado has banned Sunday liquor sales, except for 3.2 beer, since the Prohibition era. If Ritter signs the measure, the state will become the 35th in the nation to allow Sunday liquor sales.
