Subject: Co-sponsor memo- Sunday Sports Law Act 192 of 1959 Repeal
Our Commonwealth has thousands of regulations on the books. Many of these acts were enacted several decades ago and are simply archaic and are no longer applicable in the 21 st century. In addition, the existence of these outdated laws contributes to the already complex and confusing nature of government. In an effort to clean up the books, I plan to introduce a bill that will repeal one of these antiquated acts. This legislation will repeal the Sunday Sports Act which prohibits the playing of football and baseball during certain hours of the day on Sunday.

This act is clearly outdated and no longer serves a purpose. By repealing this act, we will be providing the citizens of this Commonwealth with a more transparent and streamlined rule of law.

Please join me in co-sponsoring this legislation.

Introduced as HB1408
