Anyone know about HR 875 and its affect on farming/gardening?Posted Friday, March 13, 2009, at 6:10 PM
I think I have read most of this bill as posted on the internet and have some opinions, but I was wondering if anyone else was aware of it. http://www.govtrack.us/congress/billtext...
If anyone knows exactly where to find the dangerous parts for the backyard gardener, please speak out here. If it is indeed dangerous to our small farmers, etc., I REALLY want to fight it.
From what I could see, the danger is in its' confusing, vague, all encompassing wording. It is not very clear and it gives wide power to a new "food zar". The goals can be accomplished by just enforcing the laws already out there.
It expands government, and seems extremely expensive to execute. Nothing new with government, but I do not see an immediate threat to backyard gardens.
