Gov. Greg Abbott, a Republican, signed a bill on Monday that legalizes temporary lemonade stands — and other stands selling nonalcoholic drinks — run by minors on private property or in public parks.
“Here’s a common sense law. We had to pass it because police shut down a lemonade stand here in Texas. ” Abbott said before signing the legislation into law and then holding a glass of lemonade in a video posted to Twitter. “So kids… cheers.”
