This morning the U.S. Senate just voted to allow a full vote on the much anticipated Food Safety Modernization Bill (S.510). While this bill has been controversial, family farmers and small-scale producers need the vital protections from the Tester-Hagan Amendment and the Manager's Amendment to be included. Already Big Ag has weighed in to try to kill these amendments, which exempt farmers that have gross sales of less than $500,000 and sell within 400 miles of their farm. The Tester-Hagan and Manager's Amendments are the last best hope we have of protecting family farmers from onerous regulations. Please take a moment to make a call for America's family farmers.
