Atlanta, GA (CBS46) The cities of Atlanta and Alpharetta joined several other Georgia municipalities Sunday allowing the “Sunday Brunch Bill” to become law.

Restaurant workers can now pour alcoholic drinks starting at 11 a.m. on Sundays instead of having to wait until 12:30 p.m.

The Georgia Restaurant Association lobbied lawmakers for four years, asking them to let the citizens decide. The legislature approved the measure during the 2018 session, allowing municipalities to put the referendum question on the November ballot.

Voters in most metro Atlanta communities approved the Sunday Brunch Bill overwhelmingly.
