Rep. Glen Bradley has filed his bill to exempt North Carolina from the federal food safety law sponsored by Republican Senator Richard Burr that Rob wrote about last week.

The tea party fringe is sending out alerts about the bill and a recent AP story that mentioned Bradley’s legislation also included a quote from Rep. George Cleveland

The federal government should not be dictating what we do in the states…Go home. We’ll take of our business.

House Speaker Thom Tillis says he’s not familiar with Bradley’s bill but noted that “the election cycle has produced a lot of diversity of thought.”

Well, that’s one way to put it.
