Tuscaloosa Wants Sunday Sales

The Tuscaloosa City Council plans to ask the Alabama Legislature for the right to allow residents to vote on selling alcohol on Sundays.

The city leaders plan to meet with local state representatives to push them to get a set of measures passed, including the Sunday alcohol sales legislation. Tuscaloosa had a set of top issues introduced as bills during the in the 2007 Alabama legislative session, but all died when they were not voted on before the session expired.

The Sunday alcohol sale legislation that Tuscaloosa is pushing would allow cities the same size or smaller to hold community referendums on the issue. Cities larger than Tuscaloosa already have alcohol sales on Sunday.
