Outlawing legal actions to target a selective few - unintended consequences would be .. ?
A new Pima County ordinance would put an end to panhandling at 14 county intersections by making the act “trespassing”. It is currently not illegal to trespass on medians. If approved by the board, it would make trespassing (standing for long periods of time) illegal. My question is: what about the people who sell newspapers at corners? What about political protesters?
Meanwhile in Tampa voted 6-0 to repeal a 2011 ordinance that banned panhandling along the right of way while allowing newspaper hawkers to work the road seven days a week.
Your right to protest does not include a right to block traffic or roads.
Your right to sell stuff doesn't include the right to interfere with traffic, and it is unfair to say you can sell from a road without regulation but anyone on the sidewalk or a store has to get a lot of permits.

Since they walked out, their actions should have consequences. They should amend their process so that a quorum can be formed from present legislators and let the vote go through. I'm fed up with this crap and am surprised that the Wisconsin citizens allow it. The state senators...
