    I guess we’ll just have to wait and see what happens next. Rep. Newberger keeps telling me not to worry about it. In reality, I think we’ve done about all we can do at the moment. We’ll just have to be patient. Now Gov. Dayton is holding all of the bills hostage because of his early education and gas tax demands. Uffda! I’ll let you know what I…[Read more]

    Here’s his answer David. I guess you are right to stall a little bit. Sure wish things were more simple. This is from Rep. Newberger.

    Hi Shelley,

    I spoke with Rep. Hamilton on Friday. They will be

    taking the entire omnibus bill off of the table this

    week and should be voting to pass it before next

    Monday. He said the the House version of…[Read more]

    I will ask him right away. For sure you are correct. All of this legal stuff is majorly confusing! Thank you!

    Hi David, yes it’s been a little crazy with the whole omnibus bill thing. However, from what my representative told me, the omnibus has passed all of the senate committees and the only thing happening now is adding some wording that was not the same on both the House & Senate bills. He said that it’s passed all of the hurdles and just waiting for…[Read more]

  • We are getting there!
    Very Thankful This Thursday! http://wp.me/p3XeDt-tw

    • Shelley, that’s great news! But I do want to make absolutely sure that the smoke has cleared.

      Very confusing, indeed. From what I can tell, the cottage food exemption has been rolled into a massive omnibus bill, HF 1437, which addresses much larger concerns than the cottage food one, so now it’s just along for the ride.

      It appears that after a…[Read more]

    • Okay, well if you get the opportunity to double check that with your rep, then that would be great. Everything I’m reading suggests that the bill is now moving onto the Senate for consideration. This is the status page I’m looking at: https://www.revisor.mn.gov/bills/bill.php?b=house&f=HF1437&ssn=0&y=2015

      I just don’t want to update the MN page…[Read more]

    • It never does seem to be simple, does it?

      I can understand that the CF language isn’t controversial (if it were it would probably have stayed in its own bill), and it would likely pass on its own (if considered), but the problem with a mega bill like that is that there are so many things in there, that it increases the chance of conflicted voting…[Read more]

  • We’re so excited to share with you the progress being made with the Minnesota Cottage Food Law Bill! Here is an article recently posted on the Minnesota House Of Representatives website. Many thanks to everyone for all of your support!
