Lawmakers allowed communities to ban the sales, but the bill didn’t specify the time.&nbsp;</p><p>So now,&nbsp; if a community says it wants to ban liquor sales between 7am and noon on Sundays, the state <a href="http://www.michigan.gov/dleg/0,1607,7-154-10570---,00.html">Liquor Control Commission</a> says the local government is banning all Sunday liquor sales.</p><p>Andrea Miller is with the Liquor Control Commission. She says the way the law is written&nbsp; it gives the commission no choice.&nbsp;</p><blockquote><p><em>"Basically if they send in the resolution stating that they are banning the Sunday sales (of alcohol), they are banning Sunday sales completely."</em></p></blockquote><p>Miller says the commission has heard from more than 30 communities confused about the new law and its implications.</p><p>The Liquor Control Commission plans to put a hold license applications by businesses in those communities until the legislature has time to fix the law next year.
