INDIANAPOLIS - A push to allow Sunday alcohol sales in Indiana is dead at the Statehouse.
Rep. Bill Davis, R-Portland, the chairman of the House committee that heard the bill last week, confirmed to RTV6's Norman Cox that there will be no more hearings on the proposal.
The Indiana Retail Council wants the ban lifted, saying it is unfair to consumers and costs the state $9 million in lost revenue, while smaller package liquor stores say lifting the ban would make it tougher to compete with the larger grocery store chains.
Grant Monahan, president of the Indiana Retail Council, said grocery and convenience stores operators who wanted Sunday sales are disappointed.
