"Springfield panhandling ordinance ruled unconstitutional": Illinois Times has this report on an opinion on panel rehearing that the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit issued Friday.
Josh Blackman discusses Friday's ruling in a blog post titled "7th Circuit Invalidates Anti-Panhandling Ordinances After Reed v. Town of Gilbert."

i've been meaning to take a look at indy's ordinances on this topic.
also discussed at the ilb


I saw a sign downtown that seemed to prohibit any panhandling, and I thought it was out of line.
i'm not a big fan of panhandling in general, but there are limits to what the government can do to discourage it.
