A bill aimed in part at allowing children to operate lemonade stands without interference from the state won approval Tuesday in the Louisiana House.
The vote was 90-0.
The measure, Senate Bill 99, now returns to the Senate for consideration of minor changes.
The legislation would prohibit the imposition of any tax or assessment on a minor engaging in a business with sales of less than $500 per year.
State Rep. Greg Miller, R-Norco, House sponsor of the bill, said there was a news story that said children were ticketed for not having permits to run their lemonade stand.
