Liquor bill allowing sales on Sundays passes the House

The West Virginia House of Delegates has passed a bill that would allow liquor to be sold on Sundays.

While the bill still has to make its way through the senate before it is law, public support seems to already be behind the bill.

Stephen Meyers, a Harrison County resident, says the bill would hopefully bring more economic growth to our area.

"I think that if we were to do that it would bring a lot more business growth directly to the state," said Meyers

He also believes that the bill currently in place that prohibits alcohol sales on Sunday is more a relic of the past than a law that's necessary for today.

"Not selling on Sundays just seems like an archaic thing," Meyers said "things like election day laws and things like that which prevent the sale of alcohol as well kind of seem like they're counter-productive because we don't live in that era anymore,"

Of the people 5 News spoke to the majority of people were in favor of this bill proposal becoming law.

One day that will be unchanged by the law is Christmas, on which the sale of liquor would still be illegal.
