MADISON (AP) — Children in Wisconsin could legally operate lemonade stands under a bill up for passage in the state Senate. The measure would permit anyone under 18 to operate lemonade stands on private property without a permit.

and without fear of getting in trouble as has happened in some states. They couldn’t sell more than $2,000 of lemonade a year, or 8,000 cups at 25 cents a pop.

The young entrepreneurs would also be barred from selling any potentially hazardous food, like raw meat and egg salad. That was added to address concerns of public health officials.

The measure has bipartisan support. It would have to pass the Assembly and be signed by Gov. Tony Evers before becoming law.
