The basic idea is to specify via the 10th Amendment that all foodstuffs produced in and remaining within the borders of the State of North Carolina are not subject to Federal law or Federal regulation. This will at the very least protect our State's farmer's markets, as well as preserve local food coops and direct-from-farmer purchases of food.

More details to follow. I should have a bill number by February 1st or 2nd. Bills cannot even be filed (to get a bill number) until January 28th or 31st. Text of the Act should be available around January 14th.
Since the US House has now used scurrilous means to pass S.510 The "Food Safety Modernization Act" in violation of the US Constitution, the North Carolina Farmers Freedom Protection Act is now more important than ever.

I will now be accelerating efforts in this area. Stay tuned for updates!
