In Georgia it is by each county to regulate the laws for baking from home.
Here is a link on "How An Idea Becomes Law" maybe this will help everyone here understand the process.
You had stated that I was incorrect because my original link was about people running for political office, I'm still not sure where you found that in the original link.
You are correct that the state constitution and state statutes are two different things. However, FL provides a way for voters to amend the state constitution directly without the involvement of the legislature (similar to CA's proposition process)...that's what my link was all about. It seems that at least starting toward this end -- which is admittedly a tough road -- will at best result in an amendment placed on a ballot, and at worst show lawmakers that home bakers are organized and willing to take their case directly to the people.
I understand what you guys are doing with the online petition, I'm just suggesting potential next steps (creating an officially sanctioned petition with hand-collected signatures and forming a PAC) that might carry more weight.
