Help Oklahoma’s food truck owners by repealing excessive regulations!
I’m writing to encourage you to support Oklahoma’s food truck community by passing HB 2010.
Oklahoma is fortunate to have a robust community of food trucks and mobile food vendors, giving consumers many great options for any type of food they are looking for. Unfortunately, burdensome regulations keep many Oklahoma food truck owners from reaching more customers and growing their business.
Currently, mobile food vendors in Oklahoma are subjected to licensing at the state, county, and municipal levels – meaning that if a food truck operator wants to visit another city for a night, or operate in more than one county, they may have to apply for a new license and be subject to new fees, regulations, and unnecessary hurdles.
HB 2010 will remove many of those hurdles by creating a simplified licensing process for mobile food vendors operating in the state of Oklahoma. Having a convoluted, multi-step process that requires business owners to jump through new hoops any time their food truck crosses a county or city line does not make anybody safer – it simply creates barriers to entry and growth for entrepreneurs. This bill offers a reasonable, safe solution to the overregulation these small business owners face, and I strongly urge you to support it!
