Senate overrides Riley's veto on liquor sales
The bill now becomes law after both the House and Senate have voted to override the veto.
The Senate voted 18-11 to override the veto on Thursday.
The law will allow municipalities in dry counties to approve liquor sales through a referendum. Currently, municipalities must have a population of 7,000 to have municipal option, but the bill lowers that number to 1,000. The bill excludes three counties: Clay, Randolph and Blount.
The bill is sponsored by Rep. Jimmy Martin, D-Clanton.
