House Commerce Committee passes Sunday sales bill

Minnesota’s House Commerce Committee passed the Sunday alcohol sales bill on a 15–4 vote. The bill now goes to the general register.

KMSP-TV:

The bill’s chief author, Rep. Jenifer Loon of Eden Prairie, has pushed for the repeal in every legislative session for the past four years. Each time, her bill has been voted down over concerns from unions and small businesses who’ve argued that opening an extra day would only increase labor expenses without increasing sales.

Loon also has a powerful co-sponsor in House Speaker Kurt Daudt, who told Fox 9 last week he believes he has the votes to pass it.
