News Washington: A State Full of Sinners

OLYMPIA, Wash. - Sunday liquor sales will get a boost when 29 more stores open their doors on Sundays starting July 15.
Lawmakers this year approved the increase in stores after an initial expansion proved to be popular.
Two years ago, the state approved a pilot project to allow 20 state-run stores plus contract stores run by private vendors to open between noon and 5 p.m. on Sundays. The pilot program returned $7.5 million in revenue for state and local programs.
The total number of state stores open on Sunday will now be 49.
The state has 161 state-run stores and 158 contract stores run by the private sector, typically in rural areas.
Seattle will have THREE liquor stores open from 12-5 on Sundays, located at 515 1st Ave. N., 1605 12th Ave and 2746 NE 45th.
If God had intended for us to make Margaritas on Sundays, it would say so in the Bible.
I’m moving to Utah.
