A License To Panhandle?
Is this a solution for Downtown Orlando?
BUFFALO, N.Y. -- People who beg in Buffalo might someday have to have a license and ID tags.
With more residents and business owners complaining about aggressive panhandlers, city officials are considering ways to curb begging.
One City Council member said a license application for panhandling in public places is a possibility. Under that plan, beggars would have to submit basic information about themselves and wear identification tags when they're soliciting.
