Some 600 people rallied today outside the Connecticut state Capitol in support of Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s plan to overhaul state liquor laws.
Advocates for Connecticut’s liquor industry are promoting a wide-ranging bill that would overhaul the state’s liquor laws, including allowing retail alcohol sales on Sundays.
The state Department of Consumer Protection says it’s awaiting 2010 Census figures to determine whether any communities have grown enough to make another liquor permit available for a potential business owner.
State lawmakers are being urged by the liquor industry and grocery stores to allow Sunday alcohol sales, while package store owners oppose the bill.
