I wanted to share with you something that has been on my mind for a few weeks.
It will impact thousands of small businesses including mine, if it is passed.
I believe it may start with cosmetics but will eventually roll over to those that make anything and sell it whether online, at a craft fair, etc.
The committee on Energy and Commerce is looking at how to provide adequate funding for the FDA. If you would like to take a look at this
you will be able to read more about it.
I like to have a choice when purchasing products. I buy a lot of Indie products but I will also buy from larger companies. If this goes through, there will be no choice. We will be purchasing from the big guys only. Many companies will be put out of business and it will certainly impact the already shaky economy. I know in my case I deal with a quite a few companies- packaging needs, labels, web hosting, paypal, ingredients, even the United States Postal Service.
It will have a great impact.
I am posting a link to the Indie Business blog
where you can read more about The FDA Globalization Act of 2008.
I signed the petition to stop it. I like to have choices and I believe in the American dream.
If you have a chance, please visit the link. This effects all of us.
On March 6, we did have our Azaleas near the Gazebo, looking their BEST. But it was a rather dreary day without sunshine... Hard to capture them! I did any...
