Lawmakers are working to protect children’s lemonade stands from being shutdown because of regulatory requirements. The Senate bill would eliminate any requirements for permits, fees, or licensing for children selling lemonade or other non-alcoholic beverages. The issue came to legislators’ attention after eleven-year-old Hayli Martinez testified before lawmakers that her lemonade stand in Kankakee was shut down by local officials.
