North Dakota House Committee Approves Bill Allowing Sale of Alcohol Before Noon Sundays

The House committee on Monday approved a measure that would allow alcohol sales on Sundays in North Dakota to begin at 10 a.m. instead of noon.

The House committee on Monday approved a measure that would allow alcohol sales on Sundays in North Dakota to begin at 10 a.m. instead of noon.

The bill would give bars and liquor stores the option to open and sell booze at 10 a.m. on Sunday. By law, they are currently unable to sell alcohol before noon on Sunday. Liquor stores and bars can open at 8 a.m. on all other days of the week. No one spoke in opposition to the bill. The House committee gave the bill a "do pass" recommendation with a vote of eight to three. There are other bills being proposed that expand on this idea, allowing for other retailers to be open before noon on Sunday.
