Urge your Representative to protect raw milk

Action Alert from the FTCLDF:

Call your U.S. Rep. & Fax through HR 1830 petition

The movement to protect raw milk in Congress is beginning to gain steam!

Three Representatives have co-sponsored the raw milk bill originally filed by Ron Paul (R-TX): Chellie Pingree (D-ME), Tim Walberg (R-MI), and Tom McClintock (R-CA).

If passed, HR 1830 would legalize the interstate shipment of raw milk and raw milk products for human consumption, reversing the FDA’s current regulations that prohibit the interstate transport of raw milk for human consumption.
