Update on Sunday Closing Bills
On April 21st, The Senate Transportation Committee sent all three Sunday Closing Repeal bills to a Senate Sub-Committee, essentially killing these pieces of legislation for the remainder of this legislative session.
IADA would like to thank dealers and their employees for their calls, e-mails and notes to their state senators on these bills.  Your continued support has kept dealerships closed on Sundays.

Please be vigilant in continued contact with your State Legislators to keep this issue on their radar. Contact your State Legislator here
