Women suing over ban on selling homemade baked goods

Three Wisconsin women are going to court in their quest to sell their homemade baked goods to the public. 

Wisconsin and New Jersey are the only states that ban the sale of cookies, muffins and other homemade baked goods to the public. Wisconsin requires sellers to get a license, which requires renting or building a commercial kitchen, submitting to inspections and paying fees. 

Three women will take their fight against the ban to a judge on Thursday. A bill in the Wisconsin Senate would allow the sale of homemade baked goods. Similar bills have passed the Senate, but opponents said the bill would hurt commercial enterprises.
