A blue law is a category of law that regulates shopping on Sunday. These laws are designed to restrict or ban shopping for religious standards, particularly the observance of a day of worship or rest (source: Wikipedia).
- Blue laws are not just a state issue. Minnesota cities also lose revenue from the antiquated laws of a bygone era. In 2011 the Duluth city council passed a resolution to support legislation legalizing Sunday liquor sales.
- The repeal of Sunday off-sale prohibition is a bi-partisan issue. Legislators from both sides of the aisle agree that Minnesota consumers of legal age should have the ability to purchase wine, spirits, and beer any day of the week.
