Senate committee approves home-baking regulation proposal

SPRINGFIELD - A home-baking regulation proposal is one step closer to law.  A Senate committee voted 6-0 to approve the legislation on Tuesday. 

The measure would require sellers to go through sanitation training, label ingredients, pay fees, and let consumers know the product was made in a home kitchen.  However, it would only apply to those who make less than $1,000 a month.

The legislation was prompted by the shutdown of an Illinois girl's home-baked cupcake operation.  The proposal moves to the full Senate for consideration.
