With the recommendation that the substitute (H-3) be adopted and that the bill then pass.
Amendment offered by Rep. Angela Witwer (D) on March 22, 2022
To tie-bar the bill to House Bills 5704 and 5893, meaning this bill cannot become law unless those ones do also. Those bills would eliminate the cottage food sales cap altogether, and more.

To increase from $25,000 to $40,000 (and index to inflation going forward) the cap on annual sales by a home-based “cottage food” operation, which are exempt from state licensure mandates imposed on commercial food producers. Also, to allow these operations to sell over the internet or by mail-order if the sales are made through a third-party service the bill dubs a "cottage food delivery platform" .
