State Sen. Camera Bartolotta, of Washington County is proposing a bill which would lift the "blue laws" on auto dealerships. Pennsylvania is one of only 17 remaining states that prohibits auto sales on Sunday. Bartolotta believes Southwestern Pennsylvania auto dealers are losing sales on Sundays to Ohio and West Virginia dealers open for business. However Dealer Associations across the state have said many of their members don't want to be open as it increases costs with little or no improvement in sales. Should Pennsylvania auto dealers be allowed to sell vehicles on Sundays?
