WV Governor Vetoes Raw Milk Bill; Cites Public Health Concerns

CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin vetoed the raw milk bill Thursday saying signing the bill “would pose a serious risk to public health.”

The bill (SB30) did not allow for the retail sale of raw milk but it called for the establishment of herd share agreements where consumers could co-own a milk-producing animal.

Tomblin administration Communications Director Chris Stadelman said the governor got input before deciding to veto the legislation.
