According to a list compiled by the Texas Legislative Budget Board, they say opening the liquor stores on Sunday could add over $7 Million in general revenue funds.
According to the budget board, 14 states have already repealed the blue laws and they've seen financial gain.
Liquor store owners on the other hand, are divided.
One owner in Gladewater who wouldn't go on camera says she would like to be able to open up on Sunday because it would help her business.
...while Randy Koss with R.B.'s Package Store, a liquor store in Gladewater says "no thanks."
"I don't think it's gonna add a dime at all. We're just gonna take a 6 day week and divide it by 7 days. People know we're closed on Sundays. They've known it for years and they're not about to change," Koss said.
So you've heard from the liquor store owners, what do you think about this?
