    Town leaders in Canton have approved North Carolina's "brunch bill."

    The bill allows the sale of alcohol in restaurants and stores beginning at 10 a.m. on Sunday mornings.

    Previous legislation prohibited the sale of alcohol on Sundays until 12 p.m.

    Canton's Board of Aldermen heard from supporters and opponents of the bill over several weeks before voting on the measure.

    The board ultimately voted 3 to 1 in favor of Sunday morning alcohol sales. The change goes into effect immediately.

    Several towns and counties across the mountains have already approved the measure, including Asheville, Buncombe County, Waynesville, Marion and Tryon.
