St. Patrick’s Day Bill Stalled in House 

A bill to let bars open early Sunday for Saint Patrick’s Day is stalled in the Maine House.It won’t go into effect in time unless it can get two-thirds of the House, and the governor, to support it by Thursday, and the governor has threatened to stop any bill until a hospital repayment bill is passed.Usually bars and restaurants can sell alcohol starting at 9:00 Sunday mornings.Saint Patrick’s Day is a huge day for such establishments, and it happens to fall on a Sunday this year.
