California governor signs bill allowing sale of some homemade foods

Sort of the right direction.  This requires registration and permitting with the state…and why??
Now, wannabe entrepreneuers can skip the expensive step of leasing certified commercial kitchens before selling their home-prepared confections. The list of approved products include “non-potentially hazardous food” such as bread, fruit pies, jams, honey, dried nuts and other goods that don’t involve cream or meat ingredients.

The legislation, co-written by Assemblyman Mike Gatto (D-Silver Lake), still requires home food producers to obtain permits, label their goods and, in some cases, register with local health departments and complete food handler courses.
