HB 153

Below is a copy of the letter that I sent Representative Johnny Bell and Senator David Givens today regarding HB 153. HB 153 seeks to create a state milk commission within the Kentucky Department of Agriculture. This commission would be very beneficial to our local milk producers. Please take the time to write (or e-mail via Representative Bell and Senator Givens to show your support for HB 153 and to thank them for sponsoring this important legislation.

On behalf of Sustainable Glasgow I would like to express our support for HB 153, which calls for the creation of a state milk commission within the Kentucky Department of Agriculture.

This legislation is right on track with the goals that we are trying to accomplish in the Glasgow/Barren County area. Regional milk production is one of the core principles that Sustainable Glasgow was founded upon and we will do all that is possible to support local producers. In the wake of the recent peanut butter recalls, it is more and more evident that something similar could occur to our milk supply. By producing milk regionally it will be easier to track the path of the milk we consume and ensure that suppliers are complying with health and safety standards.

We believe that a state milk commission as proposed in HB 153 would be a positive force to aid local producers in producing milk for local markets. Providing Kentucky milk to Kentucky residents will enable local dollars to remain in the state, resulting in a multiplier effect that will undoubtedly boost our troubled economy.

Thank you for recognizing the need for a state dairy commission and your dedication to making it reality.
