MADISON - Holding a bake sale in Wisconsin may soon get a little easier.

The Wisconsin Senate is set to take up a bill that would exempt bake sale
participants from obtaining a state license.

Current state law requires a license for those preparing food for sale through
baking, canning, freezing or bottling.

The bipartisan bill would create an exemption for sale of homemade baked goods
by someone who receives less than 10-thousand dollars per year from the sale of
food.

They would have to be registered and take a food safety class.

Labels on each food item would need to provide contact information, and warn
that the food was made in a private home not subject to state inspection.

The Senate is set to take up the bill today.
