It was to be looked at on 3/27/12 put moved to 4/10/12

On April 10 the committee will be looking at the bill, new amendments needed to be added and some other stuff needed to be worked out as requested by the legislative staff in Sacramento.

Only the health committee will be looking at the bill on April 10th...so it will either be approved by the committee (meaning it can be put to a vote by the full assembly, which may or may not happen this year), amended (meaning further debates before a floor vote is possible), or shelved.

Thanks for the additional info, Jason. Would you please keep us informed as the slow, convoluted Government process rolls onward? [I bumped your original thread, but then re-posted to see if we get anymore signatures with a different thread title.]

Update:

The hearing date for the bill going before the Health Committee has been pushed back to April 17. There's an amendment process going on to clarify some of the language which is taking longer than expected. Hang in there! We'll make it to committee soon. We'll provide an update once the amendments are hashed out. The team is fighting for amendments that keep the red tape and costs to a minimum for cottage food producers.

Just wondering, I've mentioned this to a few people and they laugh saying this will never in a million years happen - the CA hospitality industry is planning to nuke it before it ever gets to the Assembly. Has anyone else heard this?

I don't mean to be pessimistic, I was just wondering if anyone has heard anything about the opposition.

Have not heard that. Christine did post that Whole foods in CA is supporting the bill.

If we spread the word enough to show that we really want this to happen then we can beat them. Besides it really doesn't affect them much.

The Hospitality Industry?? You don't need them to nuke the bill, the State Legislature does a fine job all by their lonesome of being anti-business.

I'm not surprised, WF (and Michaels, and independent cake supply stores) stands to gain quite a bit from an influx of new legal home bakeries.

The hospitality industry would be hotels and restaurants who cater expensive events and don't want to see home bakeries steal their business. If the hospitality industry does weigh in against this bill chances are it will not be passed unless there is a significant counterbalancing lobbying effort in the form of a well-funded home bakery SuperPAC.

I think a "well funded home bakery SuperPac" is probably an oxymoron.
