Bill would allow Oregon to shut down unlicensed food operations

More than 600 food-related establishments in Oregon are operating without permits, and there’s nothing the state can do about it.

On Tuesday, a legislative committee will consider a bill that would allow the state to shut down the unlicensed operations.

House Bill 2060 would allow the Oregon Department of Agriculture, which licenses and inspects non-restaurant food establishments, to condemn or close operations that refuse to get food-safety permits or let them expire.

Owners would get 30-days’ notice before a closure order is issued. Violating the order would bring a $10,000 fine.

1. I was in Portland last August for a relay. One street has food trucks all down one side of the


street. I wondered about the safety of the food.
