Cities that regulate home-based businesses often impose costly restrictions through a patchwork of outmoded zoning, licensing, and permitting requirements. These regulations do nothing to protect neighborhoods, and they wreak havoc on people's ability to earn a living from home.
To help these entrepreneurs, the legislature passed and sent to the governor a reform that prohibits municipalities from increasing regulations on home-based businesses beyond a reasonable level.
Why does this matter?
As inflation tightens family budgets, people who desire to work from home without disturbing their residential neighborhoods should be able to do so. It's common sense.
