Two state lawmakers are working to change laws regarding hunting on Sundays

HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – No hunting on Sundays has been a Pennsylvania law for 142 years, but two state lawmakers are working to change that.

Representatives Frank Farina of Lackawanna County and Robert Godshall of Montgomery County have introduced legislation that would allow hunting on 8 to 12 Sundays a year.

Farina claims it would add 7,000 jobs and millions of dollars to the economy.  The Pennsylvania Farm Bureau opposes hunting on Sundays saying it is a day farmers seek peace and quiet.
