Amarillo, Texas - Some small farms may be exempt from stricter regulations to keep food safe.
The Food Safety Bill being debated in Congress would allow the FDA to create stricter guidelines to prevent food borne illnesses.
Many small farmers fear these new regulations could put them out of business.
The Senate agreed last night that specific small farms will not have to follow these guidelines. Farms that earn less than $500,000 a year and sell directly to their buyer.
