Rosenberg: No ‘Gut Feelings’ On Bill Expanding Sunday Liquor Sales

A bill that would allow retail alcohol sales on Sundays beginning at 10 a.m., rather than noon, has not yet undergone review in the Senate after only recently passing the House.

“It just got there and we haven’t started to review it yet,” said Senate Majority Leader Stan Rosenberg about the bill (H 228), which is sitting in the Senate Committee on Ethics and Rules that Rosenberg chairs.

Proponents of the bill said it would keep more business in Massachusetts as people do Sunday morning errands, including shopping for tailgating at Gillette Stadium.

Asked about his “gut feelings” on the proposal, Rosenberg said, “I never make law based on gut feelings. I do my homework.”
