The Georgia General Assembly broke for the year nearly a month ago, yet the fight to allow Sunday Alcohol sales continues on in the Peach State.

The state Senate is credited with stalling Sunday sales legislation by not voting on the matter the past two years.

But now Lieutenant Governor Casey Cagle says he's finally willing to let the Senate vote on Sunday package store sales of liquor.

"Well not only do the businesses suffer but the state of Georgia as far as sales tax revenue that's lost when folks go to Florida to purchase the beer and wine on Sundays," said owner of Fishbonz Restaurant Victor Mitchell.

Victor says he supports the idea of taxpayers voting on Sunday alcohol sales.

Cagle made the statement in a letter to those who had contacted his office about legislation that would allow voters
the final say so.

Cagle says he strongly opposes Sunday alcohol sales, but believes the majority must be respected.
