The Oklahoma City Council heard proposed loosening of regulations to an anti-panhandling ordinance on Tuesday. The American Civil Liberties Union of Oklahoma has an existing lawsuit over the ordinance, saying it violated the 1st and 14th amendments.

The ordinance impacts the ability of Curbside Chronicle vendors to earn money. The street newspaper helps homeless people build a work history and lift themselves out of homelessness.
