Ga. House approves earlier Sunday start for alcohol sales

ATLANTA (AP) — Counties or cities could approve alcohol sales as early as 10:30 a.m. on Sundays under a bill approved by the Georgia House.

Friday's 121 to 47 vote sends the proposal dubbed the "better brunch" bill, to the Senate for review.

The bill's sponsor Republican Rep. Brett Harrell of Snellville says the state's restaurant association estimates moving the allowable start of Sunday alcohol sales up by two hours will generate an additional $100 million in food and drink sales.

If Sunday sales are not already legal in the area, the bill won't change that.
