The Sunday shopping prohibition is mandated by a state statute from which counties can opt out only via a referendum.Bergen County Democrats and Republicans were caught off-guard Tuesday, when Governor Christie proposed raising $65 million in sales tax revenue by repealing the county’s longstanding ban on Sunday business.

State Sen. Paul Sarlo, D-Wood-Ridge, chairman of the Senate Budget and Appropriations Committee, said he would oppose the plan and predicted political fallout for Republicans running for elected office this year.

“It’s balancing the budget on the backs of the people of Bergen County,” Sarlo said. “It would strike at the heart of people’s quality of life and at residential property values.” (more…)
