NEW HARTFORD N.Y.- Salon Owners lost three months of business, due to being closed down to stop the spread of coronavirus.

Salons are back open now, and New York State is considering changing an old law to allow them to open on Sundays, and try to make back some of that money lost.

The senate has unanimously passed a bill sponsored by senator Joe Griffo, that would repeal the state's prohibiton on barbering on Sundays.

NEWSChannel 2 went to a local salon in New Hartford Saturday and asked Connie Mandia, who owns Gianni Lauryn Hair Studio what she thinks of the bill.

"I don't think I would work Sundays as a rule you know, I don't know if I want to be open Sundays, but I would definitely selectively book my more timely services that have had trouble getting in during a weekly appointment." said Mandia.

The Assembly still has to act on the bill.

The bill wouldn't be enacted until the assembly acts on it, and Governor Cuomo signs off on it.
