Georgia’s starting off its Sundays a bit boozier and earlier after Senate Bill 17 — the “Brunch Bill” or “Mimosa Mandate” — after voters passed it at the polls on Tuesday.
SB-17 gives local governments the opportunity to call referendums on allowing Sunday drink sales to start at 11 a.m. rather than 12:30 p.m.
Sponsored by state Sen. Renee Unterman (R-Buford), the bill allows local governments to call for referendum votes on the measure.
A total 87 counties and cities across Georgia added such referendums to Tuesday’s ballots.
Local governments can also establish their own dates for earlier sales to start if the referendums pass.
