It appears the general assembly will not hear a bill allowing Sunday carryout sales this session.

It looks like the bill proposing Indiana allow alcohol sales on Sunday is dead in Committee. The Public Policy Committee failed to meet Wednesday, thereby not voting on the measure.

Public Policy Committee chair Bill Davis (R-Portland) has not stated anything publicly, but unless he calls a committee meeting out of sequence before next Tuesday for a vote, the bill will not move to the House floor.

The bill‘s author, Rep. Sean Eberhart (R-Shelbyville) says although he has not heard directly from Davis, he is still hopeful the committee will meet and move the measure to the full house for discussion. Eberhart says the bill‘s supporters presented a fair and valid argument in committee as to why sales should be allowed.

Eberhart says the measure should move to the full House for a debate to determine whether or not it is in the best interest of the state.

    You know, if I don’t show up for a meeting, I get fired. I’m tired of governments not meeting so they don’t have to vote. It’s nonsense, fire these guys and get some responsible public employees. I pay you, vote already!!!

    Grabbing a six pack of ice cold beer on a Sunday is as American as Football! It will take real courage to end these crazy nanny-state blue laws in the Legislature, obviously more courage then most of these yahoos have! Seek to enact change in the law! Save yourself from those who seek to save you from yourself! This is all about liberty!
