SB510 Passes

I just learned from friend Celeste that this bill just passed I did some research and found this article http://www.treehugger.com/files/2010/11/raw-milk-in-real-danger.php

There is some good news:

While SB 510 passed, the Tester/Hagen Amendment that was recently added to the bill excludes small farmers and farms making less than $500,000 annually, by allowing them to apply for exemption from FDA regulatory oversight. The inclusion of the amendment made the National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition finally lend support for SB 510.

The link to the article is interesting reading
