House passes bill legalizing Sunday sales, but a win in the Senate will be tougher


February 21, 2017

This is the first time in state history that a legislative chamber has passed a bill overturning the Sunday ban, a law that has been in effect since statehood in 1858 and remained in place after Prohibition.
