An item of debate in the legislature for the past three sessions has been whether or not to allow counties and communities, through local referendum, the ability to sell alcohol on Sunday.
The idea has seen widespread support among my fellow Georgians, however, the legislature has failed to pass necessary legislation to allow Sunday sales. Many legislators scoffed at the idea while saying there were bigger issues that the General Assembly had to handle.
A basic issue of personal liberty and free markets such as this shouldn’t be the source of so much debate. As your Governor, I will sign legislation allowing counties and communities the ability to determine their own path on this issue, free from interference from the state.
