Bill Would Allow Sunday Liquor Sales

Liquor could be sold on Sundays under a bill introduced by Sen. Roger Reinert, DFL-Duluth.

“Minnesota’s current statutes prohibiting the sale of alcohol on Sundays puts our state at a competitive and economic disadvantage-particularly in communities that border Wisconsin,” Reinert said. “Wisconsin already got a win with the Packers going to the Super Bowl, why give them another win with Minnesota tax dollars?”

Fourteen states forbids retail liquor sales on Sundays.

“Sunday liquor sale laws are remnants of a bygone era that no longer make sense in a 21st Century world,” Reinert said.
