Raw Milk Bill Passes Second Reading
Austin, TX— House Bill 91 which would allow licensed farmers to sell raw milk from their farms and in farmers' markets passed second reading in the House of Representatives today 122 to 14. This bill makes it clear that raw milk may only be sold at or from the farms of licensed farmers, as well as in farmers' markets.
Representative Dan Flynn, HD-2 , author of H.B. 91, said: "We have been working on getting this passed for a couple sessions now and it all comes down to free enterprise. These farmers deserve to make a living off selling their product. I also want to thank Chairwoman Crownover from the Public Health Committee for her assistance in getting this to the floor."
