IJ Wins A Victory for Food Trucks in El Paso
The video above documents how the Institute for Justice filed a federal lawsuit and successfully overturned an El Paso, Texas city ordinance that prevented food trucks from operating within 1,000 feet of an established restaurant or convenience store, which effectively turned the entire city of El Paso into a "No Vending Zone." It's another IJ victory for economic liberty and the right to earn an honest living, and a defeat for economic protectionism.
