Connecticut House OKs Sunday sales bill

HARTFORD -- Connecticut has moved closer to ending its ban on Sunday alcohol sales, among other actions involving the industry.

House Bill 5021 was passed this week, allowing sales on Sunday and certain holidays. It also calls for increasing from two to three the number of liquor stores a retailer may own. The vote was 116-27.

The bill now moves to the Senate where it must be approved my midnight May 9, the final day of the current legislative session.

If approved, Sunday sales would immediately be allowed, with any other aspects of the bill going into effect on July 1.
