CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - West Virginians can now buy liquor on Sundays.

Republican Gov. Jim Justice on Thursday signed a measure allowing stores to sell liquor on Sundays after 1 p.m.

The Distilled Spirits Council is cheering the move, saying the law could bring in more than $1 million in state revenue. The trade group says 43 states allow Sunday spirits sales.

The new rule doesn’t allow retailers to sell liquor on Christmas or Easter.
