A new law allowing businesses to sell alcohol on Sunday, and on Monday holidays, goes into effect today.
Gov. Dannel P. Malloy signed into law on Thursday a bill amending Connecticut’s Blue Laws, giving permittees the option of selling liquor and beer from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sundays.
The law of selling on Memorial Day, Independence Day and Labor Day, and on Mondays following a Christmas or New Year's Day holiday that falls on a Sunday.
Malloy signed the bill into law on Thursday at 3 p.m. at the Enfield Town Hall. After the law goes into effect, the only state left to prohibit Sunday liquor sales will be Indiana.
