Commissioners split over county option issue

By Tim Farley, News Editor

Canadian County Commissioners apparently are split if they’d call an election so voters can decide if liquor stores should be allowed to sell their products on Sunday. Currently, state law requires liquor stores to be closed on Sunday. However, the Oklahoma Legislature approved a measure earlier this week that would allow booze to be sold that day between noon and midnight. The bill has gone to Gov. Mary Fallin for her signature. As of Wednesday morning at press time, she had not signed the measure. County Commissioner Marc Hader said he doesn’t expect an election will be called until a “groundswell” of people demand it.
