Bergen County’s blue laws have become a topic of public discussion ever since Gov. Chris Christie decided that repealing law would help close the massive budget gap in NJ. I’ve thought long and hard about this trying to understand both cases for this action and I’m pro Blue Laws. As a longtime resident of Paramus, I have always loved the longstanding ban on Sunday business.
I have two reasons for keeping business’s closed. The first is, let’s face it, there is a traffic issue in Paramus. The Blue laws provide Paramus residents with one day to move around town without a hassle.
