Dickerson hails food-service bill

State Rep. Pam Dickerson, D-Conyers, was excited by the passage a house bill she introduced, H.B. 101, which exempts some temporary food service establishments from certain regulations.

Dickerson, who represents District 113, including a western portion of Newton County and a small portion of Rockdale County, introduced the bill to help boost temporary businesses in Georgia by exempting temporary food vendors at events like festivals and fairs from an arduous food service application process.

“I supported H.B. 101 because this issue is important to me. While I would have preferred to see my legislation as the vehicle, as a business owner myself, I understand the obstacles and barriers that we face. Any solution must be supported,” Dickerson said in a press release. “I truly believe that small businesses are the backbone of the economy, and I want to do my part to eliminate unnecessary red-tape.”
