Property Rights Meeting
Ozarks Property Rights Congress
Hayloft Restaurant – Mountain Grove
June 25, 7 p.m.
The USDA NAIS Listening Session in Jefferson City on June 9 was well attended. Many quality comments giving reasons to scrap NAIS were voiced. Many thought the quote of the day honors might go to Bob Parker when he said, “NO NAIS, NO Way, NO How, Not Now, Not Ever.” There will be a complete report and evaluation of the session at the Thursday meeting.
Legislation Watch: S 787 (the Clean Water Restoration Act) passed out of committee to the full Senate. If this bill becomes law, we will lose our rights to use our own property as we see fit.
“Food Safety” bill HR2749 is on the move. There are no less than 18 pieces of ‘food safety ‘ legislation on the fed level including HR875, HR 759, HR1332 and S425 and 510. All would have the net effect of licensing and registering anyone who ‘holds, houses and grows food.’
These bills also provide for “traceability” and in at least one, they mention NAIS by name. These bills will affect all growers, including backyard gardeners. Farmers’ markets will be a thing of the past.
Mark your calendars

As quickly as things are happening in Congress, we need to be especially alert. Please try to come to the meeting and bring a friend or two.
