Last week a Los Angeles County supervisor proposed a new ordinance increasing but limiting the time a food vendor truck can stay in one spot, and threatening violators with possible jail time. On Tuesday, several vendors and their lawyer showed up to the Board of Supervisors meeting to oppose it. Some said they invested a lot of money in their business, and complained that they can't sell enough in that amount of time to survive. Supervisor Gloria Molina, who penned the ordinance, replied: "It's still against the law. It doesn't mean that just because you made that investment that you should be entitled to carry out your business." Because of the protest, the final vote has been postponed to next week.
