On a 25 to 22 vote, the North Dakota Senate has voted to repeal the rest of the state’s blue law.
This means retailers can be open before noon on Sundays.
Two years ago, the Senate voted down the bill.
Sen. Shawn Vedaa (R-Velva) urged a "no" vote.
"If passed, this will probably allow the largest retailer in the state to throw away their keys," Vedaa said. "They open on every holiday. They require a lot of their employees to work those holidays. Vote 'red,' and maybe someone will be able to worship on Sunday."
