The Washington Post

The Washington Post reports that all “independent operators” — i.e., people who work out of home full-time or part-time — will face new restrictions and costs in D.C. Failure to comply by August 31 will incur fines.

This includes licensing for home-based journalists and even kids mowing lawns. What’s more, very few people even know about the new requirements, because the agency that is supposed to enforce it “ran out of money” and hasn’t yet advertised. (Tapped says this is enough to force a conversion to libertarianism.)
