ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Minnesota senators are returning to a familiar topic: whether to permit Sunday liquor store sales.
The Senate Commerce Committee was expected Monday to discuss the measure, but wasn't planning to take a vote. Sen. Roger Reinert, a Duluth Democrat, introduced the bill earlier this month. The committee will also discuss a host of other alcohol-related bills.
Sunday liquor store sales come up every year at the Capitol, but have found little success. Reinert tried the same bill in 2011, but it stalled after passing one committee.
Minnesota is one of 12 states that still outlaw Sunday liquor sales. All of Minnesota's neighboring states allow it.
Reinert's bill would also allow liquor stores to open on Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
