I can’t believe we’re past the halfway point of the 2018 legislative session. It’s been a busy week on the Hill. Here’s a little of what went down the fourth week.
HB181-presented by Representative Marc Roberts, this bill allows for zero regulation on foods that are produced and sold from home-based businesses. Although I am in favor of less regulation on home-based businesses, I had to vote against this bill. I didn’t feel it accomplished what the sponsor intended, and it created gray areas. Without this bill, a person can already sell raw produce, baked goods and certain processed foods which are made at home or produced in a garden without any state regulation.
This week, I had the opportunity to meet with high schoolers from Manila, who made the long trek to the Capitol for a field trip. I was able to meet with a homeschool group from Morgan. We talked about constitutionality and the important role it plays in legislation. My daughter Madi and her friend Michael came to visit Thursday. On Friday, I had the opportunity to meet with teachers and school board members from District 53. All in all, it was a pretty great week.
As always, I am thankful for the opportunity to represent you on the Hill. Please contact me at email@example.com with any questions or concerns. Thank you for supporting my family and I in this adventure.
