Sunday Alcohol Sales Bill Moving Through Georgia Legislature

The lifting of a ban on Sunday alcohol sales in Georgia is steadily moving its way through the legislative process.

The bill made its first leap Wednesday when it passed the Senate, but it still has a way to go.

The bill would let communities decide if they want to hold a referendum on allowing retailers to sell alcohol on Sunday.

Opponents say that day should remain holy.

"It's just wrong on Sunday because that's the day that you worship," said Johnnie Bellglenn.

Supporters say the measure is outdated because many people worship other days of the week.

The bill's next stop is the state House.
