Seventy-five members of Congress are asking the Food and Drug Administration to allow further comment on sweeping food safety rules that farmers say could drive them out of business. The group sent a letter Monday asking the agency to propose a second set of rules to implement the 2011 Food Safety Modernization Act, which would require farmers to take new precautions against contamination. New England farmers have argued that many aspects of the rules were derived from large-scale practices that don’t apply to the region’s smaller farms.

She is co-sponsoring a bill, called the Small BREW Act, that would cut the federal excise tax in half for small breweries across the nation. The proposal would save more than $1,000 a year for a place like Seven Barrel. It doesn’t sound like a lot, but consider that small businesses generally don’t have a lot of discretionary money for things like marketing or advertising.
