Want to make a few bucks shoveling snow for people? New Jersey demanded a license.
Case in point: Seems New Jersey (or possibly a few towns in it) had passed a rule requiring anyone offering to shovel snow for money to get a license.
That's right, these pinhead politicians demanded that people register and get a license to shovel snow for a few bucks.
And the damn license could be *very* expensive: $450 in one town. And was only good for one season!
Last year two teens going door-to-door offering to shovel snow for a few bucks were stopped by the cops in Bound Brook. The cops told the boys 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, saying it was incredible that some towns wanted teens to pay expensive licensing fees just to clear snow off driveways.
