Legislation Is In The Airwebdev
The Utah Legislature is in session. This is the note I sent to 16 legislators:
HB 181 HOME CONSUMPTION AND HOMEMADE FOOD ACT
SB 108 RAW MILK AMENDMENTS
These bills are easy.
Should I have the right to purchase food from a private party? Yes.
Am I capable of deciding if I trust the quality of the food I am purchasing? Yes again.
These bills ensure that proper labeling gives me ample information in the event that there is something wrong with the food.
This is good economics at its very heart; 2 parties engaged in what they determine to be fair trade. Bad food will not endure in a free economy.
History has shown that no amount of regulation can protect the public 100%. People do have a certain responsibility to protect themselves, these bills allow for that responsibility and choice.
The essence of free trade is that I get to purchase whatever I want with limited reasonable restrictions. These bills provide adequate precautions and restrictions.
Please vote for the free market—vote for HB 181 and SB 108.
Food Freedom is a no-brainer. In fact it is alarming that we are even having the discussion. If you live in Utah please get involved, both of these bills are still in committee and are being heard today January 31, 2018.
Here is where you can read the bills for yourself:
HB 181 – HOME CONSUMPTION AND HOMEMADE FOOD ACT
SB 108 – RAW MILK AMENDMENTS
