MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Gov. Tony Evers has signed a bill into law that allows children to legally run lemonade stands. Evers signed the bill Monday. It allows anyone under age 18 to run lemonade stands on private property without a permit and without fear of running afoul of the law, which has happened in some states. The bill would limit sales to $2,000 of lemonade a year, however. That translates to 8,000 cups at 25 cents each.
