For decades, Bergen County has been the only New Jersey County to institute a blue law keeping shops closed on Sundays.  But with New Jersey’s economy in a slump, can the state afford to lose a day of business? Joining Steve and Rafael to answer this question are Assemblyman Gordon Johnson of Bergen County and John Holub, President of the NJ Retail Merchants Association.  


 Next, Phil Alagia, Essex County Chief of Staff and Bill Spadea, President of Building the New Majority offer their perspective on the changing landscape of New Jersey politics.
