Tamale bill heads back to Hobbs’ desk

(The Center Square) – A new version of cottage food legislation known as the “tamale bill” is bound once again for Arizona Gov. Katie Hobbs’ desk.

House Bill 2042, sponsored by Rep. Travis Grantham, R-Gilbert, is similar to last year’s bill, which would legalize the street sale of certain food prepared in home kitchens. 

“This common sense right-sizing of food preparation regulations is bipartisan for a reason. There’s no reason not to allow entrepreneurial Arizonans the opportunity to build small businesses from their kitchens,” Americans for Prosperity’s Arizona State Director Stephen Shadegg told The Center Square in a statement. The free-market organization is holding a rally at the Capitol on Wednesday in hopes of encouraging the governor’s signature.
