      Requirement for Restaurants to Display Calories On Menus Delayed Until 2016

      Restaurants in Georgia that already serve alcohol on Sundays would have two more hours to do so under legislation the Georgia House of Representatives approved Friday.

      The so-called "Sunday brunch" bill, which passed 121-47, would expand the starting time for on-premises consumption of alcoholic beverages on Sundays from 12:30 p.m. to 10:30 a.m.
