New Jersey repeals law requiring license to shovel snow

This is not a joke....

While preparing for a blizzard, New Jersey repealed a state law requiring young people to get a permit before shoveling snow for money:

Just days ahead of an expected blizzard on the East Coast, New Jersey has officially repealed a nonsensical rule banning the shoveling of snow without a license:

Gov. Chris Christie on Tuesday signed a bill making it legal for New Jersey residents to offer snow shoveling services without first registering with their town. Last year, two entrepreneurial teens going door-to-door and offering to shovel snow for a small fee were stopped by local police in Bound Brook.

The cops told the two boys, Matt Molinari and Eric Schnepf, they were not allowed to solicit businesses without a permit.

In Bound Brook, that license costs $450 and is only good for a period of 180 days.

After the story made national headlines, state lawmakers began working on a solution.

Republican State Sen. Mike Doherty, who sponsored the so-called “right-to-shovel” bill, said it was incredible that some towns wanted teens to pay expensive licensing fees just to clear snow off driveways.

Meanwhile, DC residents are not expecting a quick recovery form the strong storm considering the poor job government did in responding to a small snow storm last night.

Maybe the government's inability to plow the roads will cause people in DC to rethink the notion that government is capable of running the world, running the economy, and running our lives.....

Just kidding, they won't stop that until the people demand it. Mobilizing pro-Liberty Americans to force the politicians to give us back our liberty is Campaign for Liberty's core mission. Please support our efforts.
