Cagle: OK For Senate To Vote On Sunday Sales

Lt. Governor Casey Cagle now says that he’s in favor of letting the Senate vote on permitting local municipalities to make their own decision on Sunday sales, according to the AJC.

“As a Georgian with strong religious beliefs, I oppose Sunday sales of alcohol for individual religious reasons,” Cagle wrote. “However, I recognize we live in a democracy where the wishes of the majority must be respected.” Later in the letter, he wrote, “While I would vote against such a change at the ballot box, I do not believe the Legislature should deny the voters a chance to make a choice for themselves and their community.”

No word yet on what Governor Sonny Perdue thinks about this.

    Does Casey think the 2008 Session is still open? Who gives a rat’s patootey what he thinks now? He stonewalled this during the session, even after the online sites boasted sign-ups to support Sunday sales in the 10,000-20,000 people?

    Those who think Casey is qualified for ANY higher office in this state are simply delusional.

    Great timing, Casey… that’s like George Bush arguing two weeks after leaving office that Obama might want to think about shutting down Gitmo.

    Let’s get the liquor industry to pay for a special session. Joe Hamilton can do the pr.

  4. Chris says:

    Yay! Bill finally got his sense of humor.

    So, um Casey, when Sen. Harp re-introduces Sunday Sales next year, you’ll fast track it through Regulated Industries and Rules, right?
