On November 12, 2013, the PA Senate passed SB 1131 to remove restrictions on potato packaging in Pennsylvania. The bill eliminates the restriction requiring a certain weight per container on potato packages under three pounds. For containers over three pounds, packages must meet the required net avoirdupois weights listed in the bill.
The bill has been sent to the House Agriculture Committee for review.
For the history of the bill, please see the PA General Assembly’s website.
