Nov 1, 2013Proposal could help Pennsylvania growers
Proposed legislation could remove a regulatory burden on Pennsylvania potato growers.
Currently, state law requires potatoes be packaged for sale in containers weighing 3 lbs., 5 lbs., 10 lbs., 15 lbs., 20 lbs., 25 lbs., 50 lbs., 100 lbs. and multiples of 100 lbs.
Legislation introduced by Sen. David Argall would allow potatoes to be packaged without weight restrictions.
