Though the Senate Bill 510 has passed the Senate and is now in the house (hopefully it will not pass), I found this more in-depth information that helps to explain what has and is going on with the bill. Please study Senate Bill 510 and weigh in on what you think. If you believe that this bill in its present form is potentially oppressive to small and personal food production, please contact your representative to demand that they amend this bill to exclude small-scale production.
Though some of the bill may, in fact, protect the country's food supply, the engine behind the bill is Monsanto and it's desire to monopolyze food production in the country and to force the public to consume hybrid and genetically modified foods that they have invested in heavily but are meeting resistance in the market.
When Roland and I met, I was one of those people who opened the box or can and warmed up the family meal. After our marriage in 2005, I truely began to appreciate what food is really about, not only that it can taste very good, and be nutritious, but that it can be a celebration of who you are and the people that you share it with.
