Sen. Hagan tries to protect small farmers

That's two more blue stars, Kay:

U.S. Senator Kay R. Hagan (D-NC) has cosponsored two amendments to the food safety bill that will protect small, local food producers from unnecessary and burdensome regulations that could harm their businesses.

"I am working with my colleagues to make changes to the food safety bill to allow our smaller producers to continue operating under existing state regulations. These amendments will ensure we do not overburden our small farms."
