- Banning Organic Farming & Regulating Home Gardening, HR 875 & S 425 (Mar. 13, 2009)
March 13, 2009. * Legally binds state agriculture departments to enforce federal guidelines effectively taking away the states power to do anything other than being food police for the federal government. * Effectively criminalizes organic farming, but doesn’t actually use the word 'organic.' * Affects anyone growing food, even if they are not selling it but consuming it.
* Affects anyone producing meat of any kind including wild game. * Legislation is so broad based that every aspect of growing or producing food can be made illegal. There are no specifics, which is bizarre considering how long the legislation is.
