Editor’s Insight: This article claims the lawmaker decided to cancel the bill due to a community backlash from people who like the food trucks.

VendingMarketWatch noted back on 02-21-12 that the state government needs to have fair rules for all foodservice providers, which the proposal lacked since it did not apply to brick and mortar retailers that are located close to schools.

The lawmaker said he may reconsider the matter in the future. Hopefully, he will be fair to all foodservice channels. 03-29-12 By Elliot Maras
