paper description
In keeping with Donald Trump’s campaign promises of cutting burdensome regulations, this essay recommends two Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) regulations that should be removed or altered. The two regulations are for irrigation water quality standards and third-party audits. This essay argues that these regulations are unnecessary in keeping with the goals of FSMA and are burdensome for farmers of all scales, but especially small and very small scale farmers.
