Seems the "food safety bill" has come out of Senate committee. If you will take a moment to read a couple blogs who say it all better than I could possible recap.
The Shovel Ready Garden a local blogger with the action she is recommending.
These sites have postings prior to the committee approval. Cornucopia Institute, and Farm to Consumer
OpenCongress.org will include blogs and other source information should you wish to read more.
I am certain our farmer's market vendors would appreciate your support.
