Of course if it's the latter, the profits go to the charity and not your pocket. icon_wink.gif

As of this writing, Mar. 23, 2012, NJ has two active bills in the legislature: the Senate version, S 93, and the Assembly version, A 1761. Please join us on our Facebook page for up-to-the-minute information: www.facebook.com/NJHomeBakersBill or follow us on Twitter @ NJHomeBakerBill. We also have a Zazzle store where you can purchase items that show your support for these bills and let others know of their existence = www.zazzle.com/NJHomeBakersBill. But we in no way have parts of the state where a Cottage Food Law is in effect. (After working on trying to have one passed since 2009, that piece of misinformation sets my teeth on edge).

MISSOURI COTTAGE FOOD LAW UPDATE..STATEWIDE INITIATIVE

HB1508 will amend Missouri's existing food laws to add cottage food language. The public hearing before the committee is 3/28/2012 in Jefferson City, Mo. The bill must pass committee to move forward. I know it's short notice, but please try to get to the hearing, since opponents will also be speaking. The more supporters for the bill the better chance it will have to move forward. I just found out about the hearing today...Pack up your cars and meet me there.

I never hear anything new about Louisiana and can't ever find anything online about it. The map shows it's in progress. Anyone know anything about it?

The map is wrong. I suggest following this page, and asking the question there. http://www.facebook.com/louisianabakersbill

I've checked that out and it doesn't look like anything has been posted for a couple of months. I guess that means nothing has happened.

Thanks

I looked at the link and didn't see GA on there. I thought it would have been but am happy to see CA in the works. Considering how saturated the market for home bakers is here in GA I was surprised to not see it. Does anyone know if GA is considering anything? I am catching up on it all since moving here recently.

Hi all! I haven't been here in so long I feel like a newbie! lol But I know a few on here who live in CT that DOES NOT HAVE A COTTAGE FOOD LAW would like to do something about this. So if you contact me we can discuss how to get start and create a movement towards getting one. Connecticut is a tough state to get anything done. It is not a small business friendly state at all and one of the highest taxed states in the union so if we do this be prepared. I've spoken with one senator who thinks it would take years to get that done because it is not something the state wants to deal with but we can try. What does he know anyway! lol So email me if you are interested! Thanks. Oh and congrats to all the states that in progress. I hear SC is almost through!

Unbelievable how we are under so many laws and regulations. How much damage can you do with a cookie unless you are grandmother in Flowers in the Attic! icon_evil.gif lol

I found a facebook page that someone started:
https://www.facebook.com/pages/Connecticut-Cottage-Food-Law/245845002159301

Not that many "likes" yet. I think another way to promote would be over at:
http://http://www.change.org/
I see that a couple of other states have petitions going on there.

I'll do what I can to help. I'm in the process of trying to open up a my own little cafe/bakery which is taking a lot of time and effort, but it looks like I'm going to need a LOT more money. Maybe getting a cottage food law here would be a nice stepping stone.

Hi

I saw that on Face but I don't think it is the most effective way of doing this especially when you are not pushing hard enough. Nobody cares about this except those who bake so you have to get others to be compassionate towards our cause. But i am working on it! My solution to this whole problem is to move to a state that allows it which is what I am going to do but I want to push for one here at home before I leave the state. I want to at least give it my best effort so those who remain here can at least run a small business! WE CAN DO IT COLLECTIVELY!

A Facebook page is incredibly effective, if someone is working it relentlessly. icon_rolleyes.gif
