Legislators consider new laws on pie and cane syrup 

  Cane syrup and pie are demanding the same respect as similar sweet treats from Louisiana legislators. House Bill 294 by state Rep. Stuart Bishop, R-Lafayette, calls for the exclusion of home cane syrup preparations from the state Sanitary Code and commercial food regulations, affording it the same treatment as small batch jellies, preserves, jams, honey, and honeycomb products. A similar bill, HB 216 by state Rep. John Schroder, R-Covington, calls for home preparations of pie to be held to the same standards as small batch, home prepared cakes and cookies. Both bills currently sit in the House Health and Welfare Committee.
