S T A T E O F N E W Y O R K ________________________________________________________________________ 3575 2023-2024 Regular Sessions I N A S S E M B L Y February 3, 2023 ___________ Introduced by M. of A. GONZALEZ-ROJAS, JOYNER, GLICK, DAVILA, ROZIC, BURDICK, SEAWRIGHT, EPSTEIN, BURGOS, JACKSON, FORREST, MAMDANI, SIMON, MITAYNES, GALLAGHER, CRUZ, TAYLOR, STIRPE, SEPTIMO, DE LOS SANTOS, GIBBS, RIVERA -- read once and referred to the Committee on Cities AN ACT to amend the general city law, the criminal procedure law, the charter of the city of New York and the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to the regulation of street vendors in cities with a population of one million or more; and to repeal certain provisions of the administrative code of the city of New York relating thereto THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM- BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS: Section 1. Legislative findings and declaration. The legislature finds and declares that street vending plays a crucial role in New York City's small business landscape, allowing immigrants, military veterans, and others to create a foothold in the City's economy. Street vendors contribute significantly to the vibrancy of the City's streetscape and add a visible cultural representation of the City's inhabitants. Howev- er, street vendors in New York City have historically faced several barriers to business viability as a result of antiquated City laws, rules, and policies limiting the number of vending permits and licenses, as well as the criminalization of vending by the New York City Police Department and other agencies. To effectuate the removal of these barriers, the legislature finds and declares that there should be no limit on the number of street vending permits and licenses that can be issued in the City. Artificially created limits on the number of street vendors only forces the creation of underground markets, as well as vendors operating without licenses or permits outside the regulatory system. Street vendors should receive the basic opportunities to open small businesses to further stimulate the City's economy as well as provide economic viability and mobility for entrepreneurship.
