Bill Analysis

Summary: HB 970 would loosen the restrictions on the cottage food industry and allow more types of food to be prepared and sold from homes. HB 970 would also increase the number of places a citizen would be allowed to sell their products.

Analysis: HB 970 limits government, increases individual liberty, and supports free markets by lifting regulations on the cottage food industry. We support this legislation.
