2019 Regular Session

Bill Summary

The bill prohibits any county, municipality, or city and county (local government) or any agency of a local government from requiring a license or permit for a business that is:

  • Operated on an occasional basis by a minor (a person under the age of 18 years); and
  • Located a sufficient distance from a commercial entity, determined by the local government, that is required to obtain a permit or license from the local government or an agency of the local government to prevent the minor's business from becoming a direct economic competitor of the commercial entity.

The bill defines "occasional basis" to mean the business does not operate more than 84 days in any one calendar year.

(Note: This summary applies to this bill as introduced.)
