Summer Writing Updates

This week marks the end of a busy few weeks of writing. In addition to my regular Reason columns (including a recent one opposing Pres. Trump's outrageous food tariffs and another on state preemption of local food-and-beverage taxes), I've also got a piece on the USDA's proposed GMO-labeling regulations that will appear in an upcoming issue of the print magazine. In addition, Creators Syndicate recently ran an editorial that was centered on a column I'd written on Congress's consideration of the Farm Bill.

Last week, in my latest piece for the New Food Economy, I discussed how the Texas state health department has unreasonably and illegally misinterpreted the state's cottage food law to ban most types of pickles in the state. The article led to other media mentions, including an appearance this week on Texas Public Radio.

Yesterday, I turned in to the editors of the Loyola Consumer Law Review an article I'd been working on for several months that focuses on assessing consumer perceptions of class-action food litigation. The article, which follows my appearance as an invited panelist at the law review's spring symposium, is set to be published by the law review in the fall.

As always, stay tuned here for more news. And make sure to follow me on Twitter for the latest timely updates on my work.
