Half-Baked: Executive overreach makes its way to your dinner table

The following article was written by Eric Peterson and originally published on TownHall.com.

Examples of the kind of executive overreach that have come to define his presidency include unilateral changes to Obamacare, sweeping new rules issued by the FCC designed to impose centuries railroad-style regulations on the internet, and the far-reaching and expensive red tape he is seeking to impose on our electricity grid including airline emissions, trucking companies, and even humble wood-burning stoves. The latest overreach, however, may quite literally take the cake and comes to us courtesy of the Food and Drug Administration. This sweeping regulation will directly affect what kinds of food we are allowed to purchase at our neighborhood grocery store.

PURCELLVILLE, Va., June 25, 2015 – The Convention of States Project denounces today’s Supreme Court ruling in King v.
