A new proposed bill could end up forcing Chick-fil-A to close several locations in New York.

The new bill was proposed last week and it would require all restaurants that operate at rest stops along the Thruway to be open seven days a week.

Chick-fil-A's current corprate policy is that all stores are closed on Sundays. The policy has been in place since 1946, due to Chick-fil-A's founder's religious beliefs.

The founder of the chicken restaurant was a devout Southern Baptist and mandated that the company wouldn't force their employees to work on the Sabbath.

According to their website, here are the current Chick-fil-A locations that are inside a rest stop along the Thruway in New York State.
