According to the bill sponsor, the legislation is intended to protect entry-level entrepreneurs with limited means to raise capital from criminal harassment.

Sidewalk vendors are now authorized to sell food or merchandise from a wheeled pushcart, stand, display, pedal-driven cart, wagon, showcase, rack, or other non-motorized conveyance, or from one’s person, upon a public sidewalk or other pedestrian path. Examples of sidewalk vendors could include, but are not limited to hot dog vendors, coffee carts, popcorn vendors, newspaper vendors, flower vendors, clothing vendors, etc.
