Evers Signs Bill Permitting Kids to run Lemonade Stands
Kids in Wisconsin don’t have to worry about whether their
lemonade stand is legal or not, after Governor Tony Evers signed a bill Monday
permitting children to run them. The bill allows anyone under 18 years old to
run a lemonade stand on private property without a permit, and without fear of
running afoul of the law, which has happened in some states.
The bill would limit sales to $2,000 worth of lemonade a
year – which translates to around 8,000 cups at 25 cents each. The bill does
not allow kids to sell potentially “hazardous” food items, such as raw meat and
egg salad. The bill passed both chambers with bipartisan support.
