Public Hearing Held At UW-L On Raw Milk Legalization
Several statewide agricultural groups opposed to the selling of raw milk were
on the campus of UW-La Crosse Monday....discussing why the Senate Bill of Glen Grothman shouldn't be passed. Grothman wants raw milk sales to be legalized in the state. One of the groups in attendance, the Wisconsin Cheesemakers Association. Their Executive Director, John Umhoefer.
Not the first time the milk bill has seen the light of day either. The state witnessed a push to legalize raw milk sales in 2010. Lawmakers passed the raw milk bill that year, but it was ultimately vetoed by Governor Jim Doyle after the Safe Milk Coalition urged him to kill the bill. That coalition was on campus again Monday as part of a public hearing on the bill.
