Backers see better chance for Sunday alcohol sales

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Supporters of ending Indiana's longtime ban on Sunday retail alcohol sales are hoping a change in the Legislature has improved their chances.

That change is the appointment of Republican Rep. Tom Dermody of LaPorte as chairman of the House Public Policy Committee after the resignation of previous chairman Rep. Bill Davis of Portland.

That committee held a hearing during this year's legislative session on lifting the Sunday ban, but Davis refused to bring it up for a vote.

Indiana Retail Council president Grant Monahan tells The Indianapolis Star he believes Dermody's appointment is a positive development for Sunday sales supporters.

Dermody says he hasn't made any decisions about the issue.

Indiana is the only state that prohibits retail carryout sales of beer, wine and liquor on Sundays.
