Two Indiana Sunday alcohol sales bills move forward

Two Indiana Sunday alcohol sales bills move forward

The deal calls for the Indiana Association of Beverage Retailers and the Indiana Retail Council to support Sunday sales while opposing the expansion of cold beer sales at grocery, drug, or convenience stores.

November was also when a legislative panel working to revise Indiana's alcohol laws voted in favor of a proposal to allow Sunday sales between noon and 8 p.m. on Sundays. That could soon change.

After being debated on the Senate floor, senators will vote on whether to push the bill through to the House, where it will be debated and voted on again. "We worked on it all Fall, and think we'll have the support of the committee".

House Public Policy Chairman Ben Smaltz (R-Auburn), the bill's author, says the coalition is correct in predicting expanded alcohol access will lead to increases in drunken driving and other alcohol-related crimes. The state now limits carryout sales of cold beer to liquor stores and some restaurants.

Senate Chambers were packed Wednesday afternoon.

"They just weren't getting the pipeline of students through to work in their industries, and that's a real problem", Eckerty said of the Batesville model. "Finally, they just took the bull by the horns".

Alting's committee is scheduled to hear a bill expanding cold beer sales, but leading legislators have said that bill will likely not pass through the General Assembly this session.

Phil Boots (R-Crawfordsville) announced he has authored Senate Bill 26, which would allow a grocery store, convenience store or drug store to sell beer at any temperature.

But Indiana's Coalition to Reduce Underage Drinking wants strict amendments to both bills; for example, in-store advertising separation. The Alcohol Code Revision Commission, which met before the session and recommended Sunday sales, but not expanded cold beer sales, wrote the draft version of the legislation.

Hutcheson also asked lawmakers to require clerks to receive alcohol training, to increase the alcohol tax, and require stores to keep alcohol in a separate area, not scattered throughout.

IN now prohibits packaged alcohol sales on Sunday. Today's committee hearings were a significant step forward in the legislative process that we hope will end with Hoosiers being able to purchase alcohol for carryout on Sundays for the first time since prohibition without compromising on safety.
