Wyoming Governor Matt Mead signed into law legislation that would stop the government from interfering in certain transactions between consumers and farmers to procure food.
The bill was sponsored by state Rep. Tyler Lindholm and will “stop overregulation of locally produced foods typically sold at farmers markets and like venues.
