"Food freedom" bill back on the table

Haven't found much to cheer about during this year's legislative session. One bonehead bill after another. However, in a bit of good news, a revised "food freedom" bill is back on the kitchen table:
A week after its apparent death, the Wyoming Food Freedom Act is back in the Legislature.
Rep. John Eklund, R- Cheyenne, has introduced a revised version of the bill, which would ease regulations on certain home-based food producers.
The original bill, which died in committee, would have exempted all homemade foods from state licensing and inspection rules, provided they were sold directly to consumers. The new legislation is similar, but does not exempt milk and meat products from government oversight.
