REGULATIONS— Multiple reporters turn their eyes to the city's food trucks' increasing political activity.

Meanwhile, UrbanTurf talks to several trucks about how the regulations have convinced truck owners to expand their business without putting more trucks on the street. [WCP, UT]

STARTING A TRUCK— A member of the Reddit community in DC asks for tips this week on starting a food truck (if he goes for it, there could be another popcorn truck on the horizon).
