Proposal To Sell Cars On Sunday In Illinois

If an Illinois state senator gets his way you could soon be able to buy a car on Sunday in Illinois.

Sen. Jim Oberweis who is a Republican from Aurora wants the state to abandon a law that fines auto dealers $1,500 if they open their doors on Sunday.  

Dealers fought for the law back in the 1980s so that they could all close without loosing business to a competitor who stayed open.

They also say that not much can be done on Sunday since the BMV and banks are all closed.

Oberweis says his proposal is "consumer-driven" since most people tell him at town hall meetings that they want to be able to buy on Sunday.
