Indiana legislators OK lifting Sunday cycle sales ban

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Indiana's motorcycle dealers will be allowed to buy and sell their bikes on Sundays under a change in state law that legislators have approved.

The Indiana House voted 68-31 on Monday in favor of the bill removing the current ban on Sunday motorcycle sales.

Bill sponsor Rep. Ed Soliday of Valparaiso says all the states surrounding Indiana already allow Sunday sales and that the state's dealers are losing out on business. The bill only affects motorcycles and doesn't change Indiana's prohibition on Sunday sales of other motor vehicles, including cars and trucks.

The Senate previously approved the bill and it now goes to Gov. Mitch Daniels for his consideration. The change would take effect in July.

  • Why now
    Who put the $$ into making sure this was suddently a matter of great importance?
    Seems to be another story here...
  • Religion and Lawmaking
    Some antiquated laws still in place in the state of Indiana never cease to amaze. Obviously this one along with sale of liquor continues to unveil the guiding force by our forefathers in implementing laws..RELIGION!!The disturbing thing is that they have not been overturned by 2012!! Whatever happened to separation of church and state??
  • Why in the world...?
    ...would someone conclude it's in the public interest to prohibit the sales of certain products on certain days of the week? If consumers are willing to spend their money on a day off to buy legal products that they need or want, how does Indiana gain by restricting such sales? This applies to motorcycles, cars & trucks, alcoholic beverages, and all sorts of things. There's just no rational reason for the prohibition!
  • Oops
    Should say "Why would..."
  • Why Not
    Would you be able to buy a motorcycle on Sundays, but not a car or truck?

    Why can't someone buy a motorcycle Monday-Saturday?

    But we can't get a smoking ban passed. Where are the priorities in this state?
    • Are you kidding??
      Really??? There is a law against motorcycle sales on Sunday??? I'd like to know the names of the 31 legislators who voted against changing this. What a waste of taxpayer's dollars to have to jump through all the hoops to change this dumb one.

      2. My name is Mr Henry Josh and i live in the USA California and life is worth living right now for me and my family and all this is because of one man sent by GOD to help me and my family, i once had a life filled with sorrow because my first SON needed a kidney transplant and all our savings were going towards his medications and this normally leaves us with no money to pay our bills or even put enough food on our table and our rent was due and no funds to pay these bills and life felt so unfair to me and every night my wife will cry herself to sleep every night until one day, i was browsing through yahoo answers and i saw a striking advert of a man that gives out personal loans and that the offer is opened to all and i have heard so many things about internet scams but at this point of my life, i was very desperate and ready to take any risk and at the end of the day, i applied for this loan and from one step to another, i got my loan within 12 hours through bank transfer and you know, it was all like a dream and i called Mr Daniel Jones A Man who is the GOD sent lender i found and said, i have received my loan and he smiled stating that to GOD be the glory and i was so shocked as i have never ever seen anyone with such a GOD fearing and kind heart and today, i am the happiest man on earth because by GOD’S grace, my SON kidney transplant was successful and today he is healthy, i and my family are living very comfortable and happy and if you are in my former situation or in serious and legitimate need of a loan, you can reach this GOD sent lender via fidelityloanfirm@outlook.com

      4. Elected officials, like Mourdock, get vested in 8 years. It takes 10 years for all other public employees, most of whom make a lot less money. So much for the promise to finish out his term.

      5. Great state treasurer and a good man!! Just curious if the folks who didn't quite understand his quote would like to tell my daughter-in-law that God didn't intend her! Mourdock's comment was correct but twisted and the article didn't mention that his opponent and the press let the impression stand that Mourdock meant that the rape was intended. Stupid people!!
