Minnesota Lawmakers Will Finally Vote on Sunday Liquor Sales Today

Will Minnesotans take the first step towards erasing the state’s 81-year-old ban on Sunday liquor sales?

We’ll certainly find out, as the House of Representatives is expected to vote today.

If passed, the bill would officially become effective on July 1 of this year and finally allow liquor sales to happen from 10 am to 6 pm on Sundays.

House Speaker Kurt Daudt says he expects it to easily pass, however the real hurdle is in the Senate, where more lawmakers still favor the ban. The fact all four surrounding states of Wisconsin, Iowa, South Dakota, and North Dakota allow Sunday sales means that passage of this bill would encourage competition and be more convenient for the consumer.

Minnesota is one of only 12 states that prohibit Sunday liquor sales.
