Sunday alcohol sales to stadium crowds and limousine passengers would be allowed under a bill approved by the state Senate. But another that would allow grocery stores to sell booze on Sundays is still languishing.

The Senate voted 30-20 on Tuesday to allow public stadiums and auditoriums to sell beer on Sundays in counties that already permit Sunday sales in restaurants and bars. The measure is aimed at a new stadium being built in Gwinnett County to host a Triple-A Atlanta Braves farm team.

The second bill would allow limousine carriers to sell alcohol to their customers. It passed 40-11.

Some communities in Georgia already allow restaurants and bars to sell booze on Sundays. But Georgia is one of only three states that ban stores from selling any kind of alcohol on the Sabbath.
