Could Congress Legalize Raw Milk? The natural health community has been touting the benefits of raw milk for years. Now there are two bipartisan bills in Congress to help legalize it. Action Alerts! In a victory for supporters of the raw milk movement, Reps. Thomas Massie (R-KY), Chellie Pingree (DME), and a bipartisan coalition of eighteen other lawmakers, have introduced two congressional bills:
· * The Milk Freedom Act of 2014 would overturn the interstate ban on raw milk, as well as provide relief for small, local producers who have been harassed, fined, and prosecuted for distributing unpasteurized dairy.
· * The Interstate Milk Freedom Act of 2014 would allow the interstate shipment of raw milk between two states where the sale of raw milk is already legal.
Raw milk is natural and healthful. The government estimates that 1% to 3% of Americans are drinking it. As the Weston Price Foundation notes in their Real Milk campaign, people are 35,000 times more likely to get sick from other FDA-protected foods than from raw milk.
Executive Order #13575 - Establishment of the Rural Council: Policy. Sixteen percent of the American population lives in rural counties. Strong, sustainable rural communities are essential to winning the future and ensuring American competitiveness in the years ahead. These communities supply our food, fiber, and energy, safeguard our natural resources, and are essential in the development of science and innovation. Though rural communities face numerous challenges, they also present enormous economic potential. The Federal Government has an important role to play in order to expand access to the capital necessary for economic growth, promote innovation, improve access to health care and education, and expand outdoor recreational activities on public lands.
