Philadelphia enacted a law in April to require Center City tour-guide operators to be certified, licensed and knowledgeable.
Councilwoman Blondell Reynolds Brown's bill requires the guides to pass a test on Philadelphia history and geography before they can lead tours in the areas between the rivers and from South Street to Vine.
So now tour guides can be fined or face suspension if they make up stuff. And of course the tour guides are not happy. A couple of them are challenging the law claiming it violates their first amendment rights.
