The closer you get! Sunday liquor sales took another step forward today, as the Senate commerce committee voted 7-4 to pass the bill, according to the Pioneer Press. 

This is a big step forward for supports of the bill, but the bill still has to get past the entire senate floor, who will debate on the bill as early as next week. This 159-year-old ban could be lifted very soon.

Monday, the House voted 85-45 to pass the bill on to the senate, easily. If the bill does get past the senate and to Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton, he has said that he will sign the bill.

This particular bill would allow liquor stores to be open from 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. on Sundays starting in July, according to the same Pioneer Press story.

As of right now, Minnesota is one of the 12 states that do not allow liquor sales on Sunday. With the help of the senate, that number could drop down to 11 within the next couple weeks.
