Another Bill That Would Increase Revenue In Texas - Doomed!

Another alcohol related bill is before the State Legislature. Senfronia Thompson (D-Houston), has submitted a bill that would allow liquor stores to open on Sunday. Thirty-six states currently allow liquor stores to be open on Sunday. It's estimated that it would increase revenue by about $3 million a year if it passed.

However, similar bills floundered in committee last year. Again, Texas legislators would rather sacrifice revenue increases to keep Texas firmly in the back of the pack.
