UPDATE: A bill that would end Indiana's prohibition-era ban on carryout Sunday alcohol sales was overwhelmingly approved by a key state Senate committee.
The measure passed Wednesday on a 9-0 vote by the Senate Public Policy committee. An identical bill was heard earlier by the House Public Policy committee, though it was not voted on.
Similar proposals have stalled in recent years, but Republican legislative leaders say the time to act is now.
A measure that would allow convenience stores, big box retailers and pharmacies to sell cold -- and not just warm -- beer faces a far more uncertain fate.
Currently that is a right enjoyed primarily by package liquor stores, which have fought hard to keep it that way.

PREVIOUS STORY:

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana House and Senate committees are taking up legislation to end the state's ban on Sunday carryout alcohol sales.

The House Public Policy committee heard testimony Wednesday morning, but did not take a vote on the measure. The Senate Public Policy committee was scheduled to do so later that afternoon.

Both committees are considering separate bills containing identical provisions.

Similar proposals have stalled in recent years, but Republican legislative leaders have expressed support for its passage this year.

A measure that would allow convenience stores, big box retailers and pharmacies to sell cold -- and not just warm -- beer faces a far more uncertain fate.

Currently that is a right enjoyed primarily by package liquor stores, which have fought hard to keep it that way.
