Proposal would allow Texas package stores to sell liquor on Sundays

A state representative has filed legislation that would allow package stores in Texas to sell liquor on Sunday.

House Bill 1100, introduced by State Rep. Richard Peña Raymond, D-Laredo, would make it legal for package stores to be open seven days a week, and sell liquor on Sundays.

The proposed bill, which was filed on Jan. 25, would allow package stores to open between noon and 10 p.m. on Sundays and between 9 a.m. and 10 p.m. on any other day of the week.

Package stores would still not be allowed to sell liquor on New Year ’s Day, Thanksgiving Day, or Christmas Day.

If this bill is passed, it would take effect Sept. 1, 2019.
