A state senator is urging consumers to reach out to their lawmakers to support a true free market when it comes to car sales on Sundays.

Republican Senator Jim Oberweis says at first he thought his proposal would be championed by the car dealers, but quickly found out that wasn’t the case and there were lobbying groups in support of the Sunday sales ban.

Illinois is one of 15 states that regulate car sales on Sunday with a right-out ban from the practice. Last year, the Federal Trade Commission came out in support of lifting the ban saying the law limits choice for the consumer and unfairly stifles competition.
