DEMONIC INSANITY: Democrats In NY State Assemby Want To FORCE Chick-fil-A Restaurants To Be Open On Sundays
New York bill would force Chick-fil-A on Thruway to open on Sundays: 'Public good'

By Jon Brown, Christian Post Reporter Thursday, December 21, 2023


The New York State Assembly is considering a bill that would effectively mandate Chick-fil-A restaurants along the New York State Thruway and the Port Authority to remain open on Sundays in violation of its sabbatarian policy.

Bill A08336, also known as the Rest Stop Restaurant Act, was sponsored by Democratic Assemblymember Tony Simone and "requires that food services at transportation facilities and rest areas owned and operated by certain public authorities remain open seven days a week."

Fellow Democratic Assemblymembers Anna Keller, Maryjane Shimsky, Jessica González-Rojas and Chris Burdick served as co-sponsors. The bill was referred to the New York State Assembly Committee on Corporations, Authorities & Commissions on Dec. 13.

According to local CBS 6 Albany, Chick-fil-A currently has seven locations and plans to build more along the New York State Thruway, a system of highways that stretches approximately 570 miles across the state from its southwestern border with Pennsylvania to New York City on its eastern coast.

A Thruway official told local NEWS10 that Chick-fil-A had already signed a 33-year contract with the Thruway.

Simone, who represents parts of Manhattan, told the outlet that keeping a restaurant closed along the Thruway is "just not in the public good." He finds it "ridiculous that you're able to close on Sunday — one of the busiest travel days of the week."

Simone said in a statement to local Albany outlet Spectrum 1 News that "not only does Chick-Fil-A have a long, shameful history of opposing LGBTQ rights, it simply makes no sense for them to be a provider of food services in busy travel plazas."

"A company, that by policy, is closed on one of the busiest travel days of the week should not be the company that travelers have to rely on for food services," he added.

Jennifer Givner, a spokesperson for the New York State Thruway Authority, said in a statement that the governing agency has factored in Chick-fil-A's weekly closure by providing other dining options for those traveling on Sunday.

"Our requirement is that we have at least one hot food option available," Givner said. "If Chick-fil-A is closed on Sundays, we have other alternatives for our customers."

The proposed legislation drew criticism from some on social media who alleged it was an attempt to punish the fast food outlet. Chick-fil-A has remained closed every Sunday since its founding in 1946 "to allow Operators and their team members to enjoy a day of rest, be with their families and loved ones, and worship if they choose," according to its website.

I like chickfila food and don't care for religtards but it should be their prerogative if they want to close Sunday or not. None of the government's business.

I can see the reports already about how the racist Chick Fil A just left NY for some made up reason to hurt the POC or something along those lines...they will whine like they are about the illegals being sent there...its not fair...

Hopefully Chick just leaves and never goes back, they can keep their crappy dunkin and bagels and shut the hell up...

British ursupation through democrats and republicans.

From the declaration of independence...
But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

They hold a multi-decade contract. The contract can't be abridged just by passing a law. It could be renegotiated, but the Chicky folks have to agree.

This could have been done when the initially setup the lease; or once the lease expires when they create a new one. This is just progressives pandering to the anti Christian community.

Chick-fil-A can burn for all I care.

All their white employees and customers can kiss the boot of the black man.

This Title is misleading. There's always more details than the title of these posts let on to. If these were stand alone restaurants, then hell yeah they should be allowed to be closed any day of the week they want. But if this is a mini-branch or kiosk or a restaurant on public property that is required to be open 7 days a week, then they should either be forced to be open 7 days a week like all the other businesses there, or lose their contract to be able to do business there at all.

This is all revenge because of Chickfila's christian stance, do you think these demonrats would be forcing a muslim food business to be open during prayer hours? Nope.

Get out of NYC.
