You Can Fight City Hall...and Win

Posted: Updated:

(NBC) It is sweet success for an Illinois girl! Governor Pat Quinn signed the "cupcake bill" into law this week at  the home of 12-year-old Chloe Stirling.
She helped get the law passed, after the Madison County Health Department shut down her home-based cupcake business for not having a business license.
The new law applies to home kitchen businesses making less than a thousand dollars a month. And it says they can't be shut down unless there is a complaint or health safety issue.
The governor said the legislation opens the doors to more small home-based businesses to operate with less government interference. And Chloe agrees.
