A House committee is looking at a bill that would do away with the prohibition that retail stores can’t be open before noon Sundays.
Rep. Pamela Anderson (D-Fargo) is the bill’s sponsor. She told the House Industry, Business and Labor Committee that individual stores should be given the choice of when to open on Sundays, or being closed that day. Anderson said stores like Hobby Lobby do not open at all Sundays -- and that's their choice.
"State law should not get involved in that argument," Anderson said. "We either believe in free market -- or not."
