Bulloch Bill Moves Food Safety Forward in Georgia

Georgia’s Commissioner of Agriculture has high praise for State Senator John Bulloch and his food safety bill.

“I want to publicly thank and applaud Senator Bulloch for his work in putting Senate Bill 80 together and working to get it passed,” said Commissioner Tommy Irvin.

“Drafting legislation is not easy, so I was pleased when Senator Bulloch took this on. He worked with his colleague Representative Tom McCall in the House to craft this bill. I am pleased with the outcome. It will make the Georgia Department of Agriculture’s food safety program more effective by requiring testing and reporting of tests by food processors,” said Commissioner Irvin.

“Senator Bulloch shares my commitment to food safety and, as a farmer, he personally knows that food safety is an issue that is as important for producers as it is for consumers,” said Irvin.
