Sunday blue laws in are suspended in Hackensack and Mahwah today because of Hurricane/tropical storm Sandy. Bergen County Executive Kathleen Donovan wants the state to suspend blue laws throughout the county today as well…but only for today.
Here is a better idea. Suspend the blue laws permanently so consumers have choices seven days a week. Sunday blue laws are a defacto establishment of religion. If people want a “day of rest” they don’t need a law to take a day off. For those of us who want to shop on Sunday, leave us alone.
