Liquor sales to be legal on Sundays if passed.

A high-profile bill that would allow Connecticut package stores to sell alcohol on Sundays and some retailers to discount one alcoholic liquor item each month is facing a second committee vote in the state legislature.

Members of the General Assembly's Finance, Revenue and Bonding Committee are expected to vote on the bill on Monday.
The proposed bill would allow package stores to sell alcohol on Sundays and holidays. These stores would also be able to sell "complementary" food, under the legislation.
Last month, the legislature's Committee on General Law voted in favor of the proposal, but the modified bill eliminates Gov. Dannel P. Malloy's recommendations to allow convenience stores to sell beer, extend restaurant hours and increase package store hours until 10 p.m.
