The Tuscaloosa News covers a local effort to legalize Sunday alcohol sales
. Alabama is a Prohibition patchwork state – some counties are wet, some dry – but most of the state still bans alcohol sales on Sunday. The News notes that these laws are slowly falling by the wayside, as larger cities realize the tourism benefits of Sunday sales.
Is this really a Goat Hill story? In a state like Alabama -– where even the most mundane of local controversies can become a constitutional amendment –- you never know. Legislators have been known to intervene in local alcohol sales
from time to time.
