ATLANTA (AP) Lieutenant Governor Casey Cagle now says he's
willing to let the state Senate act on a referendum that would
allow voters to decide whether stores may sell alcohol on Sunday.
Cagle has been viewed as a stumbling block on the issue. He made

Cagle of Gainesville wrote that he still opposes Sunday sales
because of his religious beliefs.
He is considered a possible Republican candidate for governor in
Georgia, Connecticut and Indiana are the only states that don't
allow the sale of any alcohol at stores on Sunday.
