Tewksbury Liquor Stores To Get A Sunday Boost
The legislation (H 228) was approved by the House in March and passed the Senate last week.
Rep. Elizabeth Poirier (R-North Attleborough), one of the bill�s supporters, said in March that the earlier start time will provide an economic boost, helping game-day tailgaters and Massachusetts retailers who are near the borders of Rhode Island and New Hampshire. Liquor sales were allowed statewide on Sundays starting in November 2003.
A Patrick spokeswoman said the bill did not include an emergency preamble and will therefore take effect in 90 days.
