Is everyone aware of this new food safety bill, and it's impact on small farmers?

You appear to have an agenda about this bill. You posted in the thread we have going about this bill, here:

https://www.helpfulgardener.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=172858&highlight=food+safety+bill#172858

So you know

1) we are aware of this bill
2) the bill exempts small farmers
3) it probably will not go into effect any way.

Here's some information about amendments that were added to the bill specifically to protect small farmers:
