Does anyone know if there been any progress with the Bill? Last info I can find is that it was handed off to the Department of Agriculture (9/2/09). Just wondering/hoping!
Email your local State Senator.
Hey Blueskyent - were you able to find anything out about that?
From what I have found is that it passed on July 1st. and should become a law within a month. If anyone else has heard anything diffrent please let me know. Thanks
Wow! That is really great news. Congrats!
But does it affect cake decorators? From what I saw on the news yesterday, it seems to apply to packaging issues and those who want to sell at farmers markets.
Here is the bill that was passed by Senate that I just found. My understanding is that we can sell from our home but have to label the item that is is from a kitchen that is not inspected.
Here is the link. If I am reading this wrong please let me know.
Jamie, what do you think about the labeling issue with a cake? Ingredients listed on the invoice? Geez, I'll have to dust off my math skills (and a kitchen scale) to figure out an ingredient list by weight. Maybe we'll need a call to the Dept. of Ag after the bill passes, to get clarification.
Other than that, it's a dream come true!
I think it is crazy but I understand why they want it that way. I will be happy when the law goes into effect. I won't be making cakes for free anymore and giving them as gifts.
Ladies, you have had a gift land in your lap. Deal with the "math", LOL! Texans would take physics to get a bill through.
