AUSTIN — Legislation clearing a path for kids to set up their own business without fines, fees, or regulations is now law in Texas — and it all began in Overton. Governor Abbott signed House Bill 234 into law on Monday night. Abbott referred to an incident in 2015 when Overton police shut down a lemonade stand for not having a permit. The stand was set up by two sisters, 7 and 8 years old. State Representative Matt Krause’s bill now makes it legal. The law takes effect September 1.
