A staff report from the Federal Trade Commission is giving support to those who want to end the state's ban on Sunday auto sales. U. S. Senate candidate Jim Oberweis asked the FTC to weigh in and they said the ban isn't good for competition and can be harmful to the marketplace. The longstanding ban was instituted at the request of the auto dealers, most of whom still support it.

Oberweis says the state shouldn't regulate when a business can be open.
