Bill would ban alcohol sales on holidays in SC


COLUMBIA - South Carolina lawmakers want to make holiday family gatherings more sobering.

A bill sponsored by two dozen House members would ban alcohol sales on Christmas Day and Thanksgiving Day.

Legislators were to debate the bill Wednesday afternoon, but the meeting was canceled.

The measure expands the state's ban on Sunday and election day alcohol sales. Punishment could climb to a $2,000 fine or two years in prison for violators.
