Ever wonder why you can buy alcohol on a Sunday in just about every other state but Connecticut?
Our state is one of fourteen that still hold tight to so called "blue laws" and one of three that continue to ban the sale of any kind at liquor stores on Sundays.
Now, some lawmakers are challenging these laws - saying that Sunday liquor sales could raise between 1.7 million and 2.3 million in additional taxes from the sale of distilled spirits alone - and even more when liquor and wine sales are added.
Today, Where We Live, we'll explore the debate over Connecticut's blue laws and take a look at the history and future of liquor laws in Connecticut - from drinking at the casinos to buying a six pack on Sunday.
Join the conversation! Are we too strict in our liquor laws - or are we the land of steady habits for a good reason?
