Sunday sales of alcohol in Georgia is dead. Twice.

On Wednesday, the state Senate sponsor of legislation that would allow voters to say yes or no to Sunday sales at stores pulled his measure. He counted heads and didn’t have the votes.

On Thursday, the state House sponsor of similar legislation said he’d stall his bill, too. It’s the third consecutive year that the legislation has died.

“I’m not going to have our people stick their necks out on the line because of the ineptness over in the Senate,” state Rep. Roger Williams said Thursday.

“I’m just really disappointed in what they’ve done. I don’t know what kind of games they are playing, but it’s not a good game.”
