Enterprise voters approve Sunday alcohol sales


Tuesday, voters in the city of Enterprise voted in favor of a referendum to allow the Sunday sales of alcoholic beverages.

The measure passed with 1,942 votes in favor of Sunday liquor sales, and 468 voting against.

Proponents of decreasing government limits on the sales of alcoholic beverages believe that the change will allow the city to attract new businesses to the rural Alabama town and view expanding alcohol sales to seven days a week as an economic development issue.

Opponents were fearful of the increasing prevalence of alcohol in American society and its role in poor mental health, crime, domestic violence, sexual assaults, suicide and traffic fatalities.

Alcohol abuse kills an estimated 88,000 Americans per year. Alcohol is the third most common form of preventable death in the United States, trailing only tobacco and obesity.
