JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) – Missouri House members have approved legislation allowing commercial sales of motorcycles on Sunday.
State law currently bars dealers from selling cars, trucks and motorcycles on Sunday. The House legislation approved 139-5 on Thursday would repeal that ban, but only for motorcycles.
Some dealerships in western Missouri assert they’re losing business to potential customers who visit their showrooms to shop on Sundays, then head across the state line to buy motorcycles in Kansas.
Supporters hope the legislation would help Missouri-based businesses compete.
The legislation now moves to the state Senate.
