What About Blue Laws?

OG: Let market dictate -- not necessarily opposed to Sunday liquor sales. Small business -- change attitude, lower cost of doing business, reduce state expenditures and fees, reduce property taxes -- focus on reducing total costs for doing business and living in CT
MF: As small business owner, aware of challenges -- govt tells businesses what to do -- Sunday liquor sales should be optional. Need to establish environment in which small businesses can grow, whether open 5 or 7 days a week. I understand burdens, govt shouldn't be intrusive about hours
TF: I am also not in favor of telling businesses when they can and cannot be open. Legislature putting foot on businesses in mandates -- let businesses and towns do what they need to do. Reduce costs for small business and extend more credit. Remove business entity tax -- too much of a strain.
