Subject Area: Alcoholic Beverages | Municipal Powers |
Resources: bill text
This legislation would allow a municipal governing authority, by adoption of a resolution or ordinance, to authorize the sale of alcoholic beverages for consumption on the premises on Sundays from 10:30 a.m. to midnight. Current law does not allow such sales until 12:30 p.m. on Sundays. 

Additionally, this legislation would allow Georgia farm wineries to have sales for consumption on the premises in tasting rooms on Sundays from 10:30 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.
