INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – House Speaker Brian Bosma opened the door Tuesday to renewed debate in the General Assembly over Sunday liquor sales.

“I really don’t have a problem with Sunday sales,” said the Speaker. “We have them already.”

Bosma is referring to the Sunday sales that are permitted for craft brewers and farm wineries.

State lawmakers avoided the issue of Sunday sales for retailers earlier this year but big box stores and grocery chains continue to push for the opportunity to sell alcoholic beverages seven days a week.

In a news conference called to spell out his 2015 priorities Bosma said a House committee will take up the matter.

“It’s a market share issue and it impacts individual businesses and they’ll have to do what’s best,” he said of committee members.\
