The House Agriculture and Water Resources Committee will consider HB 177 in a meeting this morning starting at 8:30 AM. HB 177 would loosen restrictions on New Mexico’s cottage food industry. If passed, the bill would allow homemade food producers to sell their products online and from home and do so without a permit or a home kitchen inspection. Most other states already allow this kind of commerce and have reported zero health issues resulting from these homemade products.
The Rio Grande Foundation submitted testimony in favor of HB 177.
