Georgia Approves Alcohol Sales in Limousines

ATLANTA — Limousine drivers could sell martinis, champagne, and other alcoholic beverages to their passengers under legislation that passed the Georgia House. Senate Bill 385, sponsored by state Sen. Don Balfour (R-Snellville), passed by a 128-26 vote.

Expanding alcohol sales in Georgia has emerged as a highly contentious issue this year. Another Senate bill pending in the House would make it possible for stores to sell alcohol on Sundays. The legislation originally would have only allowed Sunday alcohols sales in a new minor league ballpark in Gwinnnett.

But a House committee amended the bill to include Sunday package sales, setting up a showdown between House Speaker Glenn Richardson (R-Hiram), who supports Sunday package sales and Gov. Sonny Perdue, who opposes it.
