We don’t think so! S.510 Push Back: Act Now! Act Here: http://salsa.democracyinaction.org/o/568/p/dia/action/public/?action_KEY=4613
Senate Bill S.510 is called ‘The Food Safety Modernization Act’. It should be called ‘The Food Monopoly Bill’. You see it will require all farms to purchase and use high-tech equipment that family farms and organic farms cannot afford and do not need. It will put these farms out of business.
This is shameful because the bad food occasionally produced in this country does not come from these little farms- it comes from Big Agribiz and they already HAVE the hi-tech equipment required by this law. It seems the equipment hasn’t improved the food they produce, and they don’t like competition from responsible farmers – they prefer a Bill that hands them a monopoly over food production by destroying that competition.
Further, this Bill is written in such an open-ended way, that if the Feds choose to, they can use it to stop you from having a home garden.
