Missourians could buy motorcycles on Sunday under legislation endorsed by a state House panel.
Missouri House panel members from both parties agreed Tuesday that the state needs to update its ethics laws, but were divided on how to do it and how far an overhaul should go.
Laws that once banned retail sales on Sundays are largely gone in many states. Yet it remains illegal in Missouri to sell cars, trucks and motorcycles on Sundays.
A Republican congressman in Missouri is standing strong in the face of a Democrat-backed push to outlaw certain weapons in the state, characterizing the effort as a Communist-style politics and vowing its legislative failure.
"I'm afraid this is going to go before a judge and it will be struck down and the public will continue to lack trust," Jones said.
The committee did not vote on any of the proposals, but Jones said it would likely take up the issue next week.
