The Cedar Rapids City Council has passed a new ordinance to clamp down on panhandling around the city. The rules don't ban panhandling completely, but it will make it much more difficult for those attempting to do so.

I caught up with local panhandler Jerry Deckyl to see what he thought of the new ordinance. Check out the clip and let me know what you think. Should we have laws against this type of thing? Should we just leave them alone so they can make a buck or two?
