Sunday Alcohol Sales in Georgia

ATLANTA (AP) - Supporters of legislation that would let local communities vote on whether to have Sunday alcohol sales say the issue is still alive and that lawmakers should let voters weigh in on the issue.

About 75 people gathered at the Georgia Capitol on Wednesday for a rally prompted by a Facebook group called Georgians for Sunday Alcohol Sales. Several legislators joined the rally, including Sen. John Bulloch and Rep. Roger Williams, the bill's sponsors.

Georgia is one of three states that does not allow Sunday alcohol sales at grocery or liquor stores. The proposals got off to a fast start after Gov. Nathan Deal signaled his support for a local option, but later met with opposition. The bill is now stalled in the Senate, which has all but declared the issue dead for this year.
