Texas governor signs bill allowing neighborhood lemonade stands
AUSTIN, Texas (KEYE) - Gov. Abbott signed what he calls a "common sense law" on Monday night--allowing kids to sell lemonade at neighborhood stands.
The bill prevents cities and neighborhood associations from blocking or regulating kids trying to sell non-alcoholic drinks, like lemonade, on private property.
It comes after police reportedly shut down a stand in East Texas in 2015.
The two siblings were trying to earn money to buy a Father's Day present.
Gov. Abbott made the announcement in a video on his Twitter account, complete with a tall glass of lemonade.
The law goes into effect September 1st.
