SB 155 filed yesterday would finally allow a change to the Sunday alcohol sales law - restaurants could begin serving at 10am if voters approve, although you still couldn't buy from retail outlets until noon. A few other changes in there as well related to liquor. I'd prefer the bill just make sales on Sunday the same time as every day of the week, but at least it's progress on the Sunday alcohol front.

Wait

Is this the first good thing they're proposed in 27 pages of this thread?


Nm this is clearly a bi-partisan bill

Yea, didn't mean to imply it was a GOP only bill. I'm assuming the House bill will also be bi-partisan, but we'll see when it's filed.

This one is bi-partisan too but the R's control the legislature so it's getting filed in this thread. HB 279 seeks to regulate the scourge of fantasy sports...

Very ambiguous language in this bill that I could easily see being applied by some busybody at the secretary of state's office to your office fantasy league - despite the "good intentions" of the bill drafters for it to only apply to those big fantasy leagues that advertise incessantly. But this still accepts the premise that fantasy sports should be regulated by the state... a premise I reject.

the good thing at least is that it explicitly legalizes commercial fantasy leagues, but its pretty dumb the way its written with no exclusions. the obvious exclusion should be if there is no net revenue

Can we agree the NC GOP has no credibility.

Consistently in Oregon i hear more about those clowns than any other state combined in the national news.

It's almost as if Rep. Saine is proud of being a whore, how else can you explain this tweet? See, the current market participants support our bill to erect barriers to entry for competitors, so the rest of you should like this bill too.

Phil Berger caught using some Facebook editing tool? To change newspaper headlines and pictures such that they painted Gov. Cooper in as bad of light as possible. Berger has always been a lying asshole, but come the fuck on. I just known Auntie Gertrude up in Eden is eating that shit up too. Fuck this guy and his supporters.

House Representative Mark Brody is filing a bill to determine whether churches have violated their tax-exempt status by engaging in political or lobbying activities.
