INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana lawmakers have voted to overturn a decades-old law banning Sunday carryout alcohol sales.
The historic bill has been sent to the desk of Gov. Eric Holcomb, who said he “won’t let too many Sundays pass” before signing it.
Lawmakers for decades have debated ending the Prohibition-era ban on retail Sunday alcohol sales, but those proposals all foundered amid squabbling by interest groups.
That abruptly changed this year with measures soaring through both chambers of the Legislature.
The House even made a change, making it effective immediately after it is signed.
The Senate voted 38-10 Thursday to sign off on that change, sending the bill to Holcomb.
