    Texas governor signs bill legalizing kids' lemonade stands

    Texas governor signs bill legalizing kids' lemonade stands
    Louis Casiano
    2-2 minutes


    Kids in Texas will now be able to run lemonade stands without fear of police shutting them down.

    Gov. Greg Abbott, a Republican, signed a bill on Monday that legalizes temporary lemonade stands -- and other stands selling nonalcoholic drinks -- run by minors on private property or in public parks.

    "Here's a common sense law. We had to pass it because police shut down a lemonade stand here in Texas. " Abbott said before signing the legislation into law and then holding a glass of lemonade in a video posted to Twitter. "So kids... cheers."

    In 2015, police in the East Texas town of Overton shuttered a lemonade stand run by two sisters because the pair lacked a $150 peddlers' permit.

    The Texas law comes as several kid-run lemonade stands across the country have been shut down because of complaints or a lack of licensure. In 2018, police in a Denver suburb closed a boy's stand after he couldn't produce a permit following a complaint from a neighbor.

    A Florida homeowners association in 2015 shut down an 11-year-old boy's lemonade business venture because he set it up in the wrong spot.

    The new Texas law takes effect Sept. 1.

    just stopped at a kids' lemonade stand 2 days ago

    I really hate lemonade but I stop at every opportunity

    its always good to see mom (or dad) somewhere in the vicinity

    I handed the girl 4 dimes and 2 nickels and mom watched as she did the counting to see if it was right

    somehow, I don't think kids are taught real counting (money) anymore

    one stand.. waay out in the boonies on a backroad cpl yrs back

    had 2 youngsters selling their wares

    I stopped and mentioned to them

    "don't forget to tell mom happy mothers day"

    Our law books are crammed full of 'unnecessary laws'...like, for instance, the one that makes it illegal to shoot buffalo from the back-end of a moving train. But now you know why it and all the others are 'on the books'...
    You say "trigger-happy cowboy" as if it were a bad thing.

    I prefer to shoot buffalo from one of the passenger car windows. Sure keeps the other riders on their toes.

    Good deed.

    But will point out, that if all they are waving is the peddler permits. The young Americans are still doing business illegally.

    And they should be shut down again, untill the labor laws for children are removed, and FICA taxes, and a general business liability mandated are removed on them too.

    Most have no idea what it takes to be a good peddler, business, etc...

    Small business is the incubator of employment. As it declines, so too do opportunities for first jobs, second chances and economic independence.

    Lol, yeah, hot brass in your lap ain't much fun at all. But about that law...all it really did was move the shooters from the caboose to the front of the train engine. And they claimed it was necessary because if the train was to hit such a large animal it could cause a derailment and kill or injure a lot of people...and they were keeping the tracks clear.
