Research from Ball State University suggests Indiana could lose between 10 and 25 percent of its liquor stores if expanded Sunday alcohol sales are allowed. Center for Business and Economic Research Director Mike Hicks says a study of alcohol law changes in border states over a nearly 30 year period also does not appear to indicate any tax revenue growth.

Hicks says there are some benefits including customer convenience.
The study comes amid a renewed effort at the Statehouse to pass legislation expanding alcohol sales to include carry-out purchases on Sundays and cold beer sales at convenience, drug and grocery stores.
State Senator Phil Boots (R-23) say he will carry the legislation and will be guest this weekend on Inside INdiana Business television.
