West Virginia Governor Vetoes Raw Milk Bill

West Virginia Governor Earl Ray Tomblin vetoed a bill that would have allowed consumers access to raw milk through herdshare agreements, which the state Senate had earlier approved.

Governor Tomblin’s veto message used the tired argument that allowing people to drink raw milk “would pose a serious risk to public health.” West Virginia House Delegate Kelli Sobonya (R – Cabell) called the veto shortsighted, preventing West Virginia from “…joining a majority of other states who support farm food freedom.”
