You probably already know that the Florida Cottage Food Bill 7209 was signed by the Governor and passed on June 21st and the effective date is July 1, 2011.
Just an FYI! There are 3 states currently waiting on their Governors to sign and pass their state Cottage Food Laws. The states are Florida, Illinois and Texas (the bills are currently on the Governors' desk). The cottage food law in Washington state should go into effect in late July or early August (it was passed). Bakers are still trying to get support from legislators in California. Keeping your fingers crossed.
Happy Baking !
The governor signed the AZ Cottage Food Law on April 13th, and it is official. The law is tentatively scheduled to go into effect on July 20, 2011 and all rules and regulations should be posted on http://azleg.gov (bookmark & watch for updates).
I'm posting here again. :) Although I still check the email notifications I get from here, I don't get to visit the site as often as I'd like. Mainly due to the fact that when I get on the computer, it's to check email and Facebook, my blog and Twitter. My mother's computer crashed and she's been having to use mine. Not to mention we are moved now, to Costa Rica, from the U.S. I am posting here a couple of questions I have about starting a home-based bakery here.
I am currently seeking a seasoned home-based baker to participate in an upcoming webinar May-June-July-August 2010. The speaking points to be covered will be provided and you will be paid a stipend for your participation. If you would like to learn more please email me at denay@cooking with denay.com
