TROY, Ill. (AP) — Gov. Pat Quinn has signed the “cupcake bill,” which was introduced after a young girl’s home baking operation was shut down by regulators.

Quinn signed the legislation Tuesday in 12-year-old Chloe Stirling’s home in Troy. He praised her for making a difference in a cause she believes in.

Chloe used her $200-a-month home-based baking business, “Hey Cupcake!”, to provide treats for friends and fundraisers. Madison County health officials shut it down in January.

In a statement, Stirling says she’s looking forward to baking again.

The law requires sellers to tell consumers the product was made in a home, among other things. The law applies to home kitchen businesses making less than $1,000 monthly. It takes effect immediately.

___

The legislation is HB5354.
