In the coming months, Councilmember Graham will draft omnibus legislation to make a series of changes to the District's alcohol laws. In preparation for this, the Councilmember convened a broad-based Alcoholic Beverage Control Working Group which developed many recommended changes during the course of their work from December 2011 to April 2012. A possible legislative change allowing Sunday sales of alcohol by Class-A licensees was discussed in the Working Group and elsewhere.

Councilmember Graham will hold a Public Oversight Roundtable to hear public comment specifically on the views of the public regarding a law change to permit Sunday alcohol sales (sales from stores with a Class-A license, allowing them to sell hard liquor as well as beer and wine).
