Many who have worked hard towards the passage of SB 201 have stated that the Governor’s veto was not entirely unexpected. There is much more to this story than just about what is best for consumers.

Here is link to a statement from the Mark McAfee,
the founder of the Organic Pastures Dairy.

It’s been a long, hard road for those wanting to preserve their freedom of choice to consume unadulterated, fresh raw milk. Regardless of your preference for animal-based foods, should it be THIS difficult to have guaranteed access to wholesome, live food in its natural state?

SB #201 Fresh Raw Milk Act – Update #4 – Final Call.

YES! We have reached “THREE COW” status !!! 

Three Cows THREE

It’s been a long road, but the final version of Senate Bill #201, “The Fresh Raw Milk Act 2008”, unanimously sailed through the Full Assembly on the 22nd of August ’08. 

A week later, the Senate voted 33 to 4 (unofficial ballot figures) in favor of the Bill. Thankfully, this is well in excess of the 2/3 majority needed to pass an “urgency bill” of this nature.

The Final Big Push:
SB #201 now sits on the desk of Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger awaiting his signature for it to become law.

However, It is not a time to become complacent,
the Governor still has the power
of veto
.

His final decision on this is influenced by many other factors, both inside and out of his administration. Persistent and overwhelming support for the signing of Bill #201 is the best way to offset these other influences.

So, it’s important that Governor Schwarzenegger
hears your voice of support for Senate Bill #201
TODAY!!

SB #201 Fresh Raw Milk Act – Progress Update #3

This is just a brief update on the progress of Senate Bill #201.

At present the SB #201 document is being “batted” back and forth getting the fine detail of the wording correct. You know, make a change, get it approved etc. Many of us would like to have seen this process over and done yesterday, but this “fine-tuning” is an essential part of the law making process.

So far, everyone seems happy with the way things are proceeding. It is expected that we will see the “Fresh Raw Milk Act, 2008” go through its final stages sometime next month.
