A New Mexico law enacted earlier this year will allow New Year’s Eve liquor sales to continue past midnight — the usual cutoff time for sales on Sunday.

KOB-TV reports state Rep. Jim Trujillo introduced the bill that took effect in June, extending liquor sales when the last day of December falls on a Sunday.

The law only applies to businesses with full liquor licenses, so certain restaurants or breweries will not be able to sell past midnight depending on their license.

The law also does not apply to towns or counties that do not allow liquor sales at all on Sundays. The next time New Year’s Eve falls on a Sunday is in 2023.
