Permits that may be issued to counties will be based on population for the first two years of the pilot program. The state Department of Health must develop a sample permit and form for permit application. A null and void clause was also added, making the bill null and void unless funded in the budget.

Amendment offered by Rep. Dan Griffey (Allyn) (R) on March 9, 2021
Provides that by opting to become permitted, the operator of a microenterprise home kitchen operation understands that the local jurisdiction will seek to enter the microenterprise home kitchen, rather than expressly granting the local health jurisdiction the right to enter. Provides that nonemergency inspections may occur by appointment or pursuant to a search warrant in addition to occurring during the normal business hours with reasonable advanced notice.
