BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - The ordinances dealing with East Baton Rouge Parish's new liquor laws have officially received the mayor's stamp of approval.
Mayor-President Kip Holden's office said Friday morning the changes have been signed.
The Metro Council passed the measure last week with a vote of 8 to 3.
Bars are now allowed to remain open from 11 a.m. until midnight on Sundays.
The adopted ordinance will also allow stores to start selling alcohol on Sundays from 6 a.m. to 2 a.m.
Supporters say it will boost business in downtown Baton Rouge, while opponents think it will be more work for law enforcement.
