Michigan communities are telling state officials that they plan to ban liquor sales for at least part of the day on Sundays.
A new state law will allow Sunday morning sales starting Dec. 19 for establishments with permits. Local governments have until Dec. 15 to tell state officials if they will continue to ban Sunday sales, either in the morning only or all day.
A list on the Liquor Control Commission website Friday indicated communities planning to ban sales all day include Saginaw County's St. Charles Township and Ottawa County's Zeeland Township.
Morning sales would be banned in Mecosta County, Ogemaw County, Fennville, New Lothrop and Byron Township in Kent County.
The new law will allow Sunday alcohol sales starting at 7 a.m. Previous law banned sales until noon.

    I just don't get it.If they would of just added a higher tax on booze as they did tobacco products it may of slowed some drinkers down,or raised a lot of tax money Michigan needs.It don't look like this state will improve much does it.Higher taxes on booze would help take high taxes off businesses to attract more to Michigan.Without more jobs in Michigan{thousands}this state will continue to cut way to much.Causing many problems for thousands.JOBS are the answer however will the government do what they need to get jobs here????????
