    State Announces New Tax Rule Meant To Help Food Truck Vendors

    California tax officials are looking to streamline the lunchtime rush for food-truck feasts with a new rule July 1. “As the food-truck industry continues to motor its way into the mainstream, the California State Board of Equalization is serving up an amended regulation that’ll make it that much easier for Californians to enjoy the culinary creations being borne out of this ever-growing industry,” according to BOE officials in a news release.

    Court Officials Decry Budget, Say Delays Will Continue

    A county court official criticized California’s 2014-15 budget in response to its recent approval by Gov. Jerry Brown.

The courts don’t anticipate any further reduction of service, a court official said Monday. However, the new spending plan won’t allow for the restoration of “painful” self-inflicted budget cuts the courts have undergone over the last few years, said Mary Hearn, spokeswoman for Los Angeles County Superior Court. “Those were all very painful, but now we’re on solid footing,” Hearn said. “The amount allocated to the trial courts in the budget that was just signed won’t allow us to restore those cuts.”
