Georgia Cottage Food Law PETITION

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Here it is! It's just the first step, but I'm stoked. Once we get enough signatures to show the true interest in a cottage food law, we can start bugging lawmakers. Please and thank you for signing!

I wouldn't wait...if you can make a case to your lawmakers for how a CFL would create jobs and pay for itself with licensing fees you may get some interest in writing a bill right now, especially when so many other states have recently passed similar legislation. TBH online petitions don't mean nearly as much as people individually contacting their representatives.

I'm working on drafting a letter we can send to our individual representatives, to be followed up with phone calls. I realize the petition is more of a symbolic gesture than anything else. Hopefully, it will help to galvanize bakers in Georgia and get us all on the same page. Don't worry, we'll be moving on this quick!

I signed and sent it to everyone I know! Don't have to be a GA baker to sign, can be family, customers, clients, etc.

Thanks, ConnieJ! We are definitely excited! We all want this, but we need EVERY Georgia Baker/Food Maker,etc. to join us in this cause. It will benefit not only Cakers in GA but ALL those people who want to sell non-perishable goods out of their home. It could be anyone from BBQ sauce makers to apple butter churnersicon_smile.gif Get the word out to every one that you THINK might be interested in producing homemade non-perishable food out of their home kitchen!
