Food Safety Modernization Act of 2009

The newest bill to protect consumers from contaminated food has been introduced in the House: it’s call the Food Safety Modernization Act of 2009, and like all bills, it seems, it’s many pages long (text is available online from the Library of Congress). I’m desperately trying to find the time to actually read it or talk to people who have read it and understand it, as I’ve seen a flare go up that between the lines and in the fine print, it’s an effort to limit organic farming and gardening (even the home variety) to the benefit of large agribusiness. If you do read it and want to take action on it one way or the other, contact your local senator or representative.
