A bill that would pave the way for the Sunday sale of alcohol in Georgia stores is headed to Gov. Nathan Deal for his signature. The House passed the measure 127-44 LAST night as lawmakers moved into the homestretch of the 2011 legislative session. The measure has already passed the state Senate, where it had stalled for years. The bill's House sponsor, Republican state Rep. Roger Williams said it's about local control, not drinking or religion. Georgia is one of just three states that bans the sale of alcohol in stores on the Sabbath. The bill would allow local governments to ask voters to decide whether they want to permit Sunday sales. Deal has said he will sign the bill if it reaches his desk.
