(INDIANAPOLIS) - House Speaker Brian Bosma half-jokingly says a study committee's look at Indiana alcohol laws this year may be more controversial than the ongoing LGBT rights debate.

He says the legislature has debated numerous bills the last several years on different parts of the alcohol system, including legalizing Sunday sales and ending the ban on cold beer sales and it's time to take a wholesale look at the code.

Democratic Representative Phil GiaQuinta, who co-authored a resolution calling for the study committee, says he doesn't think the committee will recommend a specific piece of legislation. GiaQuinta says one possibility could be putting Indiana's alcohol laws in the hands of a separate commission, instead of the legislature.
