A state agency says car dealerships in Colorado should be open on Sundays.

In Colorado, a car dealer can't sell you a car on Sunday. It's illegal. The so-called "Blue Law" has been on the books since the late 1950s.

Now, it's one of a handful of laws and regulations that a state advisory group thinks doesn't make sense anymore.

The group is called the Colorado Office of Policy, Research and Regulatory Reform or COPRRR. It's mission is to recommend to lawmakers laws that should be revised or repealed.

They've presented 25 such laws to the state legislature this session to recommend if they should be given a "sunset" or a "sunrise."

Joe Neguse oversees the Department of Regulatory Agencies which houses COPRRR.

He spoke to Colorado Matters host Ryan Warner.

Here are a few more regulations and laws COPRRR reviewed:
