Minn. legislative leaders hint Sunday liquor sales may have support in 2017


The Minnesota Legislature's long debate over alcohol sales on Sundays could end in 2017, House Speaker Kurt Daudt told reporters on Monday.

Speaking to the media during a legislative session preview event, Daudt, R-Crown, said he expects the perennial issue will come up again once the Legislature convenes in January -- and that he senses that it has the support of a majority of his colleagues in the House. Daudt said he's spoken with other legislators and also indicated that there will be shifts in the committee that will first consider the issue.

"I think it's past time," he said. "If a liquor store doesn't want to be open on Sunday, they don't have to."
