A historic Sunday in the Hoosier state
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. -- On Wednesday, Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb signed a historic bill which allows citizens to purchase alcohol on Sundays.
Since Indiana became the 19th state on December 11th, 1816 the state has never allowed the sale of alcohol on Sundays.
The original laws that were established allowed the sale of alcohol to 21-year-old adults between the hours of 7 a.m. to 3 a.m.
With the Governor’s signature that law changed to 7 days a week, with a minor tweaking on Sundays, only allowing the sale of alcohol between the hours of noon to 8 p.m. on Sundays and original Monday-Saturday sales hours.
Indiana is nonalcoholic control state but does limit the sale of alcohol to two cases per person max, or 576 ounces.
The new bill is expected to promote business in the state of Indiana.
