INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana residents who will lose an hour of sleep this weekend when daylight saving time returns won’t lose any time to buy alcohol early Sunday.

The Indiana Alcohol and Tobacco Commission will once again allow alcoholic beverage sales to continue until 4 a.m. Sunday, an hour later than normal.

The change only affects sales on Sunday and addresses the time shift that occurs when Hoosiers move their clocks ahead one hour when daylight saving time starts at 2 a.m. Sunday.

Without the change, alcohol sales would have to end an hour earlier than normal Sunday.

The one-day rule change will permit Indiana establishments to have the same number of hours to serve alcoholic beverages Saturday night and early Sunday as they normally do.
