Legislators were appalled when they learned that city police had been ticketing kids for not having a business license to run the entrepreneurial stands.

State Senator Gary Smith of Norco introduced the bill that exempts any business
making less than $500 a year from an occupational license. Lawmakers in both the house and senate unanimously passed the bill, and Governor Bill Edwards will be signing it into law.
It’ll take effect August 1, during some of the hottest days of summer when a glass of lemonade will taste the best.
