OREM, Utah — The city of Orem joined Pleasant Grove, American Fork and other cities in Utah County Tuesday night and agreed to lift the ban on Sunday beer sales.

The ban was reminiscent of blue laws aimed at restricting commerce on the Christian Sabbath.

But it was not in keeping with state law, which actually trumps local laws.

No word on when Sunday beer sales in Orem will begin.
