Indianapolis Council To Address Panhandling

Last updated on Tuesday, May 14, 2013

(INDIANAPOLIS) - The city of Indianapolis could be closer to implementating a more aggressive restriction on panhandling.

The council was presented with a proposal that would ban all panhandling within the downtown area and entire city between 5 pm and 8am.

City officials say several conventions have not returned to Indianapolis because of panhandling.

If it passes, the measure could face court challenges over First Amendment rights.
