This legislation would allow a municipal governing authority, through separate referenda questions, to authorize the sale of alcoholic beverages for consumption on the premises on Sundays from 11:00 a.m. to midnight. Current law does not allow such sales until 12:30 p.m. on Sundays. 

This legislation would also allow Georgia farm wineries to have sales for consumption on the premises in tasting rooms on Sundays from 11:00 a.m. to midnight or in closed package sales for consumption off the premises on Sundays from 12:30 p.m. until midnight, to the same extent as the local government license and laws allow.
