I have a very simple test for Republican state senators sitting on the fence about Sunday sales of alcohol. It’s multiple choice:
a) vote for SB 10, which would allow counties or cities to put to their voters the issue of Sunday sales in stores (remember, alcohol can already be sold in restaurants, stadiums and “special entertainment districts” in many parts of Georgia); or
b) do not pass the buck to voters any longer on issues like taxation and spending (such as a one-cent sales tax for transportation), and do sponsor a bill to reinstitute a ban on all alcohol sales on Sunday, and possibly the rest of the week.
I really don’t see another option that has any kind of basis in logic, much less ideology or Scripture.
Me? I’m for “a.”
