They are getting ready to vote on it!!! So maybe “urgent” news..???? Forgive me please....
Is this the Food & Farmer Control Act (my name). If so, I haven’t read it so I don’t know the details, but:
1) any new laws are automatically suspect and really ought to be Breaking News;
2) As I understand it, it sets up some serious hoops for small and all farmers to jump through;
3) It may place more controls on Farmers Markets; and,
4) I have heard that the language is loose enough to potentially encompass sharing home grown food (although I’m sure this won’t happen...right away).
I know that is not alot to go on, but I trust nothing passed by our current government - - from the underwear bomber to increased travel controls; from copyright issues on the internet to internet controls; from egg/food salmonella issues to Food controls....anyone see a pattern here?
