STATEMENT: Mayor Garcetti on City Council action to decriminalize street vending

“Decriminalizing street vending is a humane, critical first step toward protecting hard-working Angelenos who are trying to make an honest living and should not have to worry about a criminal record. I look forward to signing the ordinance passed unanimously today by the City Council, and working with them on a comprehensive, compassionate street vending law that balances the needs of entrepreneurs and the health and safety of L.A.’s neighborhoods.” — Mayor Eric Garcetti
