Kentucky Moving to Allow Liquor Sales on Election Day

The Kentucky State Legislature is considering a bill that would signal last call for a decades old prohibition on election day liquor sales.

State Rep. Arnold Simpson's reform bill to allow liquor sales starting at noon on election day passed through committee this week and was sent to the full Kentucky House of representatives for a vote.

Kentucky, the home of Bourbon, has banned liquor sales in bars and retail stores during voting since the repeal of Prohibition.
