                 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
HB238  is unneeded, burdensome, and unfair regulation.
 
The bill is for the New Mexico Chile Industry, written by the NM Chile Association, and 
NOT for New Mexico family farmers.
 
This is more regulation over farming activities, especially small farmers!
This law requires if you “advertise, describe, label or offer for sale chile peppers using the name of any geographic area or feature in New Mexico,”  
You have to do the following:
  • Register with the New Mexico Department of Agriculture (NMDA).
  • Have a verification form follow every sale you make.
  • Gives the NMDA authority to enter your  “store, market or other business or place”      to inspect and audit records related to chile.
 
===================================================
Call, email, and pack the room.  Demand the legislators listen to us! 
 
Tell Legislators that:
HB238  is unneeded, burdensome, and unfair regulation.

Mr. Schmeiser, a canola farmer from Canada, speaks about his  experiences of being sued by Monsanto for “planting” their seeds.  When in fact, the Monsanto seeds cross-contaminated seeds he had been saving for over 30 years. (www.percyschmeiser.com)
