As “must pass”
legislation, the Farm Bill has attracted over eighty amendments. One of them,
offered by Sen. Rand Paul, would allow for the interstate transport and sale of
unpasteurized milk. While some states have passed legislation allowing raw milk
to be sold within that state, it is against federal law to sell raw milk across
state lines. In fact, the FDA has been shutting down raw milk producers and
going after farmers like Daniel Allgyer for allegedly selling milk across
amendment would change that situation. It reads, in part, “A Federal
department, agency, or court may not take any action (such as administrative,
civil, criminal, or other actions) that would prohibit, interfere with,
regulate, or otherwise restrict the interstate traffic of milk, or a milk
product, that is unpasteurized and packaged for direct human consumption.”
Please contact your senators and voice your strong support for Sen.
Paul’s raw milk amendment.
