ATLANTA, Ga.---The governor of Georgia says do not look forward to buying beer on Sunday in the Peach State. On Wednesday, a House panel revived the issue of Sunday alcohol sales at stores if voters in local communities approve.

Georgia Governor Sonny Perdue said he wants to keep the state Sunday alcohol ban. He also doesn't want it to go to a vote because he thinks elected officials should vote for you.

The sponsor of that bill, Senator Renee Unterman of Buford, says she wanted the bill to pass because she says it's critical to economic development in her suburban Atlanta district. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
