So says an outraged Jim Oberweis reacting to an amendment Democrat Donne Trotter attached to a bill that would exempt those making less than $1000 from food sales from the odious health department regulations.
Trotter’s amendment would require anyone selling food products to take an 8 hour food service sanitation course costing $145, label food products to indicate ingredients and the fact that they are homemade, plus another $35 fee.
So if you’re a kid who wants to open a lemonade stand over the summer it will cost you $200 and 8 hours of your time for a useless “sanitation course”.
Oberweis said “this is absolutely insane.”
An understatement, if there ever was one, but not surprising either considering Democrats have controlled the state for a decade.
Democrats don’t know how to grow business, all they know is TAX! TAX! TAX! REGULATE! REGULATE! REGULATE! and until there is some diversity in state government, you can expect more of the same.
