HB 4956. "Food safety"

"Introduced by Rep. Jeff Mayes on June 20, 2007, to revise the state food code adopted in 2000 to require all food service establishments to have present at all times an employee who is certified under American National Standards Institute standards as having passed an accredited food safety training course; raising a number of fees; removing a licensure exemption for schools; revising various inspection requirements (including more "risk-based" rather than strict calendar-based inspection frequency); and more."

The above came directly from the web site. You gotta love those guys at Michigan Votes. They really give you the unvarnished truth.

Our friends on the Dem side of the aisle must think we consumers are incapable of any personal responsibility at all, they are working constantly to protect us from...ourselves. You know, every time they take away our need to exercise a little personal responsibility, it means we also lose individual liberty, and usually it adds more cost to everyday life.

This and many other bills introduced by the Democrats are often well intended, but seldom accomplish much more than raise the cost of doing business and the cost of goods and services to a population that just can't afford it anymore.
