Granholm Close to Decision on Sunday Alcohol Sales

Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm says she's "very close" to deciding if she'll sign a bill that would allow Sunday morning liquor sales.
The governor has pushed for the change in past years. But she said Monday a few technical issues must be resolved before she decides whether to make it law.
Under the new measure, alcohol sales could start at 7 a.m. on Sunday. That's a change from the current law banning them from 2 a.m. to noon.
Sellers would have to pay an extra $160 for a special license, which would permit sales up to 2 a.m. Monday.
The bill also expands options for wine and beer-tasting functions and having alcoholic drinks at catered events.

    I don't really care if this passes or not. But when I read, "Sellers would have to pay an extra $160 for a special license", I have an issue with the extra fee. Since the sellers are already licensed, why should they pay more money for 5 extra hours of sales?
