The bill they are trying to pass    (Posted Tue, Nov 30 '10 at 06:42 UTC)

http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill.xpd?bill=s111-510&tab=summary it is called the Food Saftey Bill, how do you think it will effect you and me , the local grower. Sounds like to me they want to inspect reinspect and charge you and me for their service . Whast I see is a large price increaase in food production even for you and me the small local growers .In Nashville where I live I am competing with products grown in Mexico, I cannot see this bill doing anything but giving the Govenerment more control over my life .Thanks

S510 is mainly meant to prevent many of the abuses of the large scale food industry. Yes, there is some risk of it affecting small farms, and that's why it's very important that the Tester amendment passes. Much of the fear around S510 comes from "astroturf" groups funded by big agribusiness trying to create misinformation and recruit small farms and their supporters to fight unknowingly on their side.

if you sell under $500K annually than you are exempt and the FDA has no control over your farm or marketing.

this bill should go a long way towards cleaning up the industrial food system.

"I don't expect to actually read the legislative language because . . . the legislative language is among the more confusing things I've ever read in my life," Sen. Thomas Carper (D-Del.) told an online news service.
