A week after its apparent death, the Wyoming Food Freedom Act is back in the Legislature. Rep. John Eklund, R- Cheyenne, has introduced a revised version of the bill, which would ease regulations on certain home-based food producers.

The original bill, which died in committee, would have exempted all homemade foods from state licensing and inspection rules, provided they were sold directly to consumers. The new legislation is similar, but does not exempt milk and meat products from government oversight.

Eklund said he decided to leave out raw milk and meat because those foods had caused health officials the greatest concern.

“That is the intent of it, if we do get it back to committee, to at least have a food freedom bill that will be acceptable with our health officials,” he said.
