Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers (D) on Monday signed a bill that allows kids to sell lemonade, Kool-Aid and other things on private property without a permit.

Under the bill, a place that prepares food for sale at a temporary stand operated by a minor doesn’t need a permit, and a town or municipality can’t require a permit or keep a minor from operating food or beverage stand.

The temporary stands, in order to qualify under the bill, must be operated on private property by children under the age of 18.

The stands can’t make more than $2,000 a year in sales and can’t sell products that spoil, such as meat.

Evers signed the bill after it passed through both houses of the state legislature in October with bipartisan support, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported.

As of July, only 14 states allowed lemonade stands without a permit.
