New bill ends ‘archaic and meaningless law’ in New York
Authorities in New York are removing a law that authorities say ends an “archaic and meaningless law.”

“It is not cutting corners to say that barbers should be able to work any day. It is the very definition of an archaic and meaningless law that has little or no impact. meaning in the 21st century, ”Cuomo said. “While this is not consistently enforced, I am more than happy to sign this repeal and allow these companies to determine which days they choose to operate.”

Although rarely enforced, there was a law in New York that made it an offense to cut another person’s hair or shave on Sunday.
“I’m glad the governor enacted a bill that I introduced that will repeal the state’s archaic ban on barbering on Sundays. Hair salons and salons, like all small businesses, have faced significant, unprecedented and difficult challenges during the coronavirus pandemic. By removing outdated and unnecessary laws like this one, these businesses will have an additional opportunity to recover financially as we work to rebuild our local and national economies, ”said Senator Joseph Griffo.
