Bill S.510 Food Safety Act is BAD.

Nov 29, 2010

Americans, you need to contact your Senators TODAY to protest the Food "Safety" Act Bill S.510. This bill is so overreaching it's scary. Do we really need Homeland Security inspecting and regulating our backard vegetable gardens? Telling you you can't save seed and grow your own food? This bill gives Congress the authority to enact just those kinds of policies. This bill protects Big-Ag, period. Small farmers across America are crucial to the future of sustainable and affordable food system in this country. VOTE IT DOWN!!!

Food Safety Bill passed yesterday in the Senate. Now it goes back to House…The house doesn’t like the Senate bill..they want their bill, HR 2749 which they passed back in 2009. It does not include any exemptions for small farmers. This bill is WAY worse than S. 510. We must push now on the Senate not to compromise on the bill or leave out the small farm amendments just to get the bill signed before they are in the minority. BETTER YET, have them make no compromise and both bill’s fail.

You need to contact our Texas Senators, John Cornyn and Kay Bailey Hutchinson.
