State Senator wants alcohol on Sundays

If one state senator gets his way, customers at restaurants, bars or sporting events would be able to buy a drink on Sunday mornings. 

Republican John Ryan says he will pre-file the legislation shortly.  He wants it to be debated during the first few weeks of the upcoming legislative session. 
Specifically, the bill would allow establishments to start pouring hard drinks, beer or wine at ten a.m. instead of waiting until noon.  He also points out New Mexico ski resorts might be able to retain more folks hitting the slopes.  Neighboring Colorado routinely allows Sunday morning alcohol sales.
 If passed, the law wouldn't apply to liquor or grocery store sales. Anti-DWI groups like MADD aren't yet taking a position on the legislation.
