SB 81 passed through the Texas Senate today! The bill is now on it's way to be signed by the governor. Assuming he signs it, home bakers could be legal in Texas starting 9/1/11. Yeehaw!!!!!!!
Not a fan of Rick Perry...but hope he signs it...
okay... I am behind the times... didn't know it had been resurrected this time!! This is wonderful news!!
YES!!!! That's great news, thanks for posting!!
yay! this is great news! i look forward to it!
Wow! That's amazing! Thank you Kelleym for all of your hard work.
Congrats to home bakers in TX! This looks to be a very liberal bill, with no restrictions other than the food must be prepackaged and non-perishable.
Jason, that is not correct.
Here is the enrolled version of the bill, with amendments.
Sections 5 and 6 are the only section that applies to Cottage Foods.
I am focusing on getting the bill signed by the governor, let's hold our questions until we make it through the last step, please. Please.
edited to correct the sections.
OK, that makes a little more sense as the restrictions are more in line with other states. Thanks for the updated link!
