BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Some North Dakota restaurants are putting on hold their plans to serve alcohol an hour earlier on Sunday, due to confusion over state law.

The Legislature earlier this year voted to allow restaurants to begin serving alcohol at 11 a.m. on Sundays, instead of noon. The goal is to put North Dakota cities on par with bordering states that allow for earlier booze sales on Sundays.

The change was to take effect Aug. 1. However, The Bismarck Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1Mn5ee6 ) that one section of state law still says sales my start at noon.

West Fargo Democratic Rep. Ben Hanson says he’s working with the Legislative Council to see if the matter can be cleared up. He says he hopes it won’t have to wait until the 2017 Legislature.
