New York's governor is considering changing the 80 year old law that prohibits the sale of alcoho on Sunday mornings

Governor Cuomo set up a panel to investigate ways to modernize the law.  This week, they heard several recommendations from the alcohol beverage control law working group.

Currently, no alcohol can be sold between 3 a.m. and 8 a.m. on Sundays statewide.
Businesses argue the law, in place since 1934, is obsolete. They say lifting it would boost sales.

But pro-family groups argue there's virtually no reason to be buying alcohol at 6 in the morning on a Sunday, and it could lead to an increase in drunk driving crashes.

Cuomo's panel is also eyeing a rule that would allow wineries to let customers to take home partially finished bottles.
