The Future of Food Carts

Hosted by

Almost every major city in America allows vendors to peddle food, trinkets, or T shirts on the street. Out of the 10 largest cities in the U.S., Los Angeles is the only one that outlaws it. A City Council committee takes up the question of whether to change that law today -- a move that would have a big impact on the estimated 55,000 street vendors operating illegally in Los Angeles.
