Cottage Food Act PASSED!!!

The most exciting news for us home bakers...the Cottage Food Act has passed! 
I got an email from Barbara Schmal tonight saying this...

"I am happy to tell you I was following the bill and the Senate Passed the Cottage Food Act.  All that has to be done is next Friday the House and Senate vote on it than it goes to the Governor.  Teddi Creamer told me this is just a formality and Friday is the last day of the session and this is normal.  The Cottage Food Act will become a law once the Governor signs it and it will be effective July 1, 2011.
Thank you to everyone that helped and supported me and kept me going.  WE DID IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

So, who's ready to bake those "Thank you" cakes for the representatives and senators?! I know I am!

Mark your calendars ladies and gentlemen...July 1, 2011!

What does this entail for us? Do we have to have our kitchens inspected? Do we have to have seperate workrooms, kitchens or food storage areas away from the family food? Do we have to get licensed?
