OK, I admit it – I watched C-Span today as the Senate muddled through speeches and votes on S. 510 – while at the same time emailing suggested language changes on the Tester Amendment to Senate staffers.  I felt that they had addressed my concerns about sales from farms to wholesalers.  Honestly, I am not that happy with either the Tester Amendment or the fact that S. 510 does not actually fund the inspections, etc., that are part of this sweeping reform.  Just a few moments ago, this letter from the fruit and vegetable types, just landed in my inbox.  They seem clear, if Tester Amendment is in, there will be no singing.
