In Wisconsin, you can't sell cookies or brownies without a license. Now three Wisconsin women are suing. Wisconsin senators have debated bills to allow baked goods sales, but the bills have died.

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

In Wisconsin, you can't sell cookies or brownies without a license. But now three Wisconsin women are suing - call them the Freedom to Bake Caucus - and they have support. Wisconsin senators have debated bills to allow baked good sales. But they've died in the past, opposed by businesses who don't want competition. It's MORNING EDITION.
