I watched the links to the actual live legislature meetings in progress ( several months ago online) and that is where I heard this info. The links are still on the AZ Legislature's site under "show bill videos". Since it is a Cottage Food Law, which means we can bake from home there are no license's needed, nor a home inspection. They will require that you have a food handler's card. That is what a cottage food law is...not baking or using a commerical kitchen. Here...
