MT Livestock Board Will Revise Controversial Milk-Inspection Fee

HELENA – The vice chairman of the state Board of Livestock said Thursday it will revise a controversial proposed milk-inspection fee, which some small milk-product producers said could drive them out of business.

John Scully told a legislative committee there is “no way” the board will go ahead with the initial proposal, given objections from most facets of the industry.

“It can’t be passed the way it is,” Scully told the Economic Affairs Interim Committee. “I’m not sure what the current course needs to be … but one thing I know is, that the (current) proposal isn’t going to be approved.”
