INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The special session of the Indiana General
Assembly is over, but it's not too early to think about next year.
That's the strategy of retailers who want to get rid of
Indiana's ban on Sunday carryout alcohol sales.
The group known as Hoosiers for Beverage Choices is asking
customers at more than 1,000 retail outlets across the state to
sign a petition promoting Sunday carryout sales. The campaign runs
through July 19.
The group formed nearly a year ago but dropped their efforts to
change the law during the regular legislative session this year.
President Grant Monahan of the Indiana Retail Council says it's
getting active again to remind consumers they're still committed to
the change.
Participating retailers include Kroger, Marsh and Jewel
supermarkets and several convenience store chains.
