It’s Unanimous: Board of Environmental Protection Formalizes Decision on BPA
Alliance for a Clean and Healthy Maine - 1/24/2013.
Augusta - After seven months of public hearings, scientific presentations, and technical analysis, the Maine Board of Environmental Protection voted unanimously this morning to replace the chemical bisphenol-A, or BPA, in infant formula and baby food packaging with safer alternatives.

Shocking: Reporting Factory Farm Abuses to be Considered "Act of Terrorism" If New Laws Pass
Alternet - 1/24/2013.
By Katherine Paul, Ronnie Cummins - How do you keep consumers in the dark about the horrors of factory farms? By making it an “act of terrorism” for anyone to investigate animal cruelty, food safety or environmental violations on the corporate-controlled farms that produce the bulk of our meat, eggs and dairy products.
34 States Shut out of Organic Farm Program by Congress and White House
National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition - 1/24/2013.
On Thursday, USDA published a notice in the Federal Register reminding the 16 states eligible for the Agricultural Management Assistance (AMA) program to submit their application by February 7 for federal assistance in order to be able to provide cost-share assistance to their certified organic farmers. Those 16 states - the 12 Northeast states plus HI, NV, UT, and WY - will divide $1.5 million among their State Departments of Agriculture. Farmers in the 34 states not eligible for the AMA program are out of luck.
