A legislative commission created to review Indiana's antiquated booze laws met today - just days after two powerful lobbying groups presented their own alcohol plan as one that will win lawmakers' approval. The Indiana Association of Beverage Retailers and the Indiana Retail Council said Friday that they have resolved longstanding differences, paving the way to repeal a prohibition on retail Sunday alcohol sales.
Eric Berman was there and joins the show to break down what happened at the hearing. According to him, it seems like the path is clear for Sunday alcohol sales in Indiana.
“Their work is not done, but they did vote on Sunday sales and at long last they voted for Sunday sales in Indiana… They are on the record and it wasn’t a close vote…. It’s non-binding, so that doesn’t mean something won’t go wrong. A lot of things can happen between now and March when they adjourn…. If this does pass, it probably wouldn’t take effect until July 1st.”
