Wisconsin Senate Committee Passes Raw Milk Bill

November 12, 2013

Wisconsin dairy farmers could sell raw milk directly to customers on their farms under a bill that's passed a Senate committee.

The latest version of the raw milk bill passed on a 3-2 vote Tuesday, with all Republicans in support and both Democrats against.

The proposal faces an uncertain future, with the state's dairy industry against it and Gov. Scott Walker expressing reservations. Supporters say raw milk is safe and has health benefits, while opponents say it puts Wisconsin's dairy industry at risk.

The earliest the full Senate is expected to consider it is next year.

The bill would require those wishing to sell raw milk to be registered with the state, undergo stringent testing requirements, and keep a log of all their sales available for inspection by government officials.
