It's seemingly been a long time coming for the State of Minnesota but today the MN Senate passed a bill by way of a 38-28 vote to legalize Sunday liquor sales for the first time. Governor Dayton has already said that he will not veto the bill meaning that Minnesotans will no longer need to cross the border to buy booze on Sundays. As a result, liquor stores could start opening seven days a week in July. A small difference between the House and Senate bills on what time stores can open on Sundays could drag the final passage out slightly.
