HB 1222: Farmers Markets Get Green Thumbs Up from House Commerce

Rebecca Terk of Flying Tomato Farms notes that the South Dakota House Commerce Committee gave unanimous approval yesterday to HB 1222, the Home-Processed Foods Bill, which makes life better for folks who sell and buy local foods.

Dakota Rural Action and the state Department of Health worked together to craft this bill to clarify the rules and help farmers markets stay in business. HB 1222 is good legislation, good for local food, local entrepreneurship, and local self-sufficiency. Legislators, keep the momentum going on this bill and get it to the Governor's desk!
