CLAREMORE, Okla. (AP) - A new law allowing the sale of on-site liquor on Sundays is now in effect in Rogers County.

County commissioners voted Monday to make July 1 the effective date for the new measure, which was approved by voters during the June 24 primary election. The new measure makes it legal to buy and consume beer, wine and liquor on Sundays for consumption on-premises, such as at restaurants.

The vote also legalized on-site liquor sales on Thanksgiving and Christmas, which were previously outlawed.

According to the Oklahoma Alcoholic Beverage Laws Enforcement Commission, 28 of the 53 Oklahoma counties that allow alcohol sales also prohibit liquor consumption at restaurants, bars, taverns and casinos during certain hours on Sundays.
