Senate Panel to Consider Charbonneau’s Bill Lifting Sunday Motorcycle Sales Ban

January 19, 2012
By

01/20/12 The Senate Committee on Commerce and Economic Development will consider State Senator Ed Charbonneau’s proposal lifting Indiana’s ban on Sunday motorcycle sales on Friday, January 20th.

Senate Bill 192 will be heard in the Senate Chamber at 10 a.m. Proceedings may be viewed online by visiting www.in.gov/legislative/2441.htm.

Charbonneau (R-Valparaiso) said he is working to lift the ban because dealerships are prohibited from selling an intact motorcycle on Sundays, despite being open that day and allowed to service motorcycles and sell merchandise, including all the parts required to assemble a bike. 

“This proposal is about removing barriers that prevent local economic development efforts, giving dealerships and consumers the freedom to choose for themselves if they want to sell or purchase that product on that day, and generating additional tax revenue,” Charbonneau said. “Hopefully this is the year we can make this change happen.”

    Why stop at motorcycles? Why do you not add all automobiles to the bill? The days of mom and pop dealerships have gone the byway a long time ago.
