Brandon Medenwald says he doesn't think state government should dictate when businesses can and cannot be open.
FARGO, N.D. (AP) — A Fargo businessman is leading a drive for an initiated measure to repeal North Dakota's law barring shopping on Sunday mornings.
Brandon Medenwald has launched "North Dakota Open on Sundays." The push for a statewide vote comes after the state Senate this week killed a bill to repeal North Dakota's longstanding Sunday business restrictions.
Medenwald tells KFGO-AM he is putting a committee together and hopes to have the measure's language ready to submit to the secretary of state's office within a couple of weeks.
If the language is approved, his group will need to gather more than 13,000 valid signatures to get the measure on the ballot.
