unexpected

As part of getting things sorted out officially after our move, I just called the Lawrence city government to ask about a business license. The city clerk's office told me that for the work I do, there's no requirement for a license.

Wow.

One of the reasons I picked Kansas as a state to look at was that they were rated high in economic freedom; not just higher than California (one of the least economically free states) but at the high end. But still, I thought business licenses were just routine for all local government. I'm seriously impressed . . .
