It is interesting that they are considering indirect sales. I bet that will be removed.

Per the Sustainable Economies Law Center on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/pages/Sustainable-Economies-Law-Center/288721762508

"The CA Homemade Food Act just passed unanimously out of the Senate Health Committee!! Amazing work by our volunteers and everyone who showed up and made phone calls!! Just a few more hurdles for this bill, but this was a huge one!"

I have been trying to keep my eye on this Cottage Food Act for some time and since the last post on June 27 and the good new of passing the Senate, has anyone heard of anything else going on? The last post said something about some other hurdles. What kind of hurdles have to happen before it is signed by our Governor gets to sign it into law? I'd appreciate any updates anyone knows about. Thanks

There have been some minor amendments to the bill (nothing really applicable to home bakeries) and the amended version will be reviewed by the Senate Appropriations committee (which looks at the financial impact of bills) on August 6th.

If it is passes Appropriations and is sent to the Senate floor by Aug 17th, and the bill is passed in a floor vote by Aug 31, it can be signed into law by Gov. Jerry Brown on or before Sept 30. It would then take affect on Jan 1, 2013.

Jason - It's my understanding from reading the bill that a food handler course is required in order to get a permit. Do you know where these courses are offered or where I can get information on this type of course? Thanks!

And this is why I just love CC!!!! Thank you so much kelleym and jason_kraft for your help in response to my questions. I will hook up with the facebook site and look into the food safe program too. I have called my senator, congressman, and everyone I can think of to encourage them to see that this bill passes. So, far so good and I've got my finger's crossed that Gov. Brown does the right thing.
Thanks again cake friends!

Jason I was reading the amended bill and it looks like they modified the Class A and Class B definitions. If iread it correctly we can't use our home ovens to prepare baked goods? Or did I just get confused in all the legislative language?
