RITCHIE BILL SLASHING FARM RED TAPE GETS COMMITTEE OKAY

Measure Cuts Taxes, Fees, Overregulation; Top Priority of NY Farmers

A bill that slashes red tape, taxes and fees on New York’s hardworking farmers—and is a top priority of the state’s farm communities—was today approved by the Senate Agriculture Committee and sent to the full Senate for action.

The “Farmers Regulatory Relief Act” (S.4340), sponsored by Senator Patty Ritchie, targets some of the most onerous taxes, fees and regulations that make it tougher for New York farmers to succeed.

“Family farmers are key to the economies of rural communities throughout New York, and helping agriculture thrive will provide a boost for our entire state economy,” said Sen. Ritchie, chair of the Senate Agriculture Committee.

SENATOR RITCHIE’S FROZEN WINE DESSERT BILL PASSES

Bill Allows Innovation, New Products, New Jobs In Food, Wine Industry

State Senator Patty Ritchie’s bill (S4054) to allow the sale of wine flavored frozen desserts in New York State passed the Senate.

“With record unemployment, New York State needs to encourage innovation in its wine industry and commercial food industries to make it easier for companies to create new products using what's already produced on New York’s farms,” Senator Ritchie said. “As the chair of the Senate’s Agriculture Committee, I felt it was vital to help encourage food manufacturers to use wine as an ingredient in more desserts like sorbets to help create new products, new businesses and new jobs both on farms, at wineries and in our manufacturing plants.”
