ST. PAUL — Another year, another defeat for Sunday liquor sales.

The Minnesota House voted 106-21 Wednesday to retain state law forbidding Sunday liquor store hours. The issue arises regularly in the Legislature, always failing by a large amount.


The vote came on an amendment to a broader liquor bill that generally authorizes liquor sales at specific stadiums, bars and other local sites. The overall bill passed 103-24.
