In 2018, the State Legislature passed, and the Governor signed, Senate Bill 946 - Safe Sidewalk Vending Act (SB 946). SB 946 prohibits California cities from banning stationary or roaming vendors from operating on public sidewalks. SB 946 also prohibits cities from regulating sidewalk vendors unless cities establish a permitting system that is consistent with the provisions of SB 946. SB 946 also requires that any restrictions placed on sidewalk vendors be directly related to objective health, safety, or welfare concerns. SB 946 went into effect on January 1, 2019.
