Senate passes landmark food safety bill, with Tester-Hagen amendment

AERO was one of many organizations leading the grassroots campaign in support of Senators Jon Tester (D-MT) and Kay Hagen (D-NC) amendment to the Food Safety and Modernization Act. Yesterday, the Senate passed the bill, including the amendment, which will protect Montana’s small farms and ranches from onerous federal regulations. We will continue to work on behalf of local farmers and ranchers as the bill is considered in the House. Read more from the National Coalition for Sustainable Agriculture and the Washington Post.
