MADISON (WKOW) – The state Legislature is expected to consider another bill legalizing the sale of unpasteurized milk in Wisconsin.
Republican Sen. Glenn Grothman says he plans to introduce the legislation in the next couple of weeks. State law currently prohibits the sale of raw milk to the public.
Opponents of the law say consumers should be able to decide for themselves if they want to buy raw milk. Raw milk supporters say it contains nutrients that are destroyed during pasteurization.
Grothman introduced a similar bill in 2011 that was stopped in committee.
According to the Journal Sentinel, Walker spokesman Cullen Werwie says the governor would sign a bill to allow the limited sale of raw milk if it contained the health protections.
