Alabama Cottage Food Law bill SB352 letter writing campaign - Page 2

The bill is set to reviewed on Wednesday April 18th. Calls and/or faxes to the Senators would help!!!!!

While I am OPTIMISTIC I am a REALIST and unfortunately Alabama is not anywhere in the running when it comes to progressive thinking.

But, I am keeping my fingers crossed thumbs_up.gif

Senator Glover called me tonight and said that Channel 5 in Mobile is interested in this bill. Perhaps this will give us some needed support. There are only 9 more session days left and over 100 bills to be discussed. Please call or fax you senators or members of the health committee before it is too late.

Senator Glover called me tonight and said that the bill got out on the AP wire and Channel 5 in Mobile is interested in this bill. Perhaps this will give us the needed support we need to pass this bill. There are 9 more days in this legislative session and over 100 bills. If you have not called or faxed your support, please do so ASAP. IF we can get enough support, Senator Glover feels that is the bill does not pass this session, it will have a good chance of passing next Spring.

GOOD NEWS!!!!!

Take a gander at this link on Senate approval of SB352 from a Montgomery station:

http://www.waka.com/news/montgomery-news/Alabama-Senate-Panel-OKs-Bill-to-Allow-Home-ale-of-some-goods-147981595.html

The only thing now is that 5000 would be the limit. Let's try and get that to 10K or 15K. Texas has 50K limit and I know that is asking a lot for Alabama but again 10K to 15K is more realistic!!!!!

Great going and thanks to everyone that rallied with us!!!! Let's just pray that the Governor signs off on it.

That's great news! (minus the 5k limit). I think 5K makes the point of a home bakery pointless. I most likely would spend 5K just to make my equipment better equipped for the business. I hope that's a misprint and they meant 50K haha. Highly doubtful though...

According to this site, SB 352 was "indefinitely postponed" (which sounds like "died" to me) on 5/9/2012.

It will be reintroduced, as the State of Alabama Health commitee did APROVE it. I was told by Senator Rusty Glover that he will re-introduce the bill and he assured me that it should pass in the next session which starts next February.

I was told that there were MANY other bills that had to get through and that's why it did not make it this time.

I will be sending out a reminder for those in the state of alabama or anyone else that would like to help us to contact the state's Legislators to help get some momentum going early in the process.

But, in answer to your remark. No, it did not completely die and yes I am looking forward to the next session to get it passed.

Ah. In Texas, when a bill fails to pass in one session and must be reintroduced in the next session, we call that a dead bill. It's what happened with our first cottage food bill. Good luck to you. Do you have a Facebook page set up?

I moved to the Huntsville area in February from Texas. I was so excited to start baking in Texas, then got here and was disappointed. I didn't hear about this bill until today.

I will be writing and sending letters of support and making phone calls as soon as it's time again. I fully support this idea and hope to see it pass in the near future.
