Food Truck Freedom

Keep the Regulations Efficient, Keep them Fair

A simple glance at these info graphics reveals a lot: mandatory distances from restaurants, multiple and redundant fees, outright bans, and a tangled web of restrictions.  A food truck owner in this state has to pay anywhere from $45 to one city in a year, $250 in another, $1400 in another to hold licenses in these jurisdictions. In some locations, he has to pay per-day fees. In other locations, he’s forced to pay licensing fees per vehicle.

The idea behind Senator Henderson’s SB250? Keep the regulations efficient, keep them fair.

  • This bill requires food trucks to maintain business licenses, health and fire safety inspection certificates without compromising public safety and right-of-way requirements.
  • It provides more standardization for business license fees and permit fees.
  • It limits the fees beyond the cost of regulation and to require redundant safety inspections.
  • It prohibits “Per-day” ,”Per-location” fees, and regulations specifying that food truck must maintain a certain distance from a restaurant.
