Subject: Important Kansas Raw Milk Update: Hearings Scheduled!

View this email online if it doesn't display correctly
Hi Friend,

We have an important update to an alert we sent out earlier today regarding access to raw milk in Kansas.

Last week, we sent you an action alert about Senate Bill 300 (SB 300), which would completely ban the sale of raw (unpasteurized) milk in Kansas, and SB 308 which would place greater regulation on farms selling raw milk. Currently, raw milk is legal to sell directly from the farm.

A hearing had been scheduled for this week on the proposed bill but was cancelled. We just heard that the Senate Agriculture Committee will hear:
  • SB 300 on Wednesday February 12 at 8:30 a.m. and 
  • SB 308 on Thursday, February 13 at 8:30 a.m.
Please attend both hearings if able to show your opposition for the bills, and if you haven't already, reach out to your senators and tell them that you oppose both bills. See action instructions below.

Please share this alert with friends and family in Kansas.

FTCLDF Executive Director

Please attend the Senate Agriculture Committee hearings about: 
  • SB 300 (which would ban the sale of raw milk) on Wednesday, February 12 at 8:30 a.m. and 
  • SB 308 (which would place greater regulation on farms selling raw milk) on Thursday, February 13 at 8:30 a.m. 
The hearings will take place at: 

State Capitol
300 SW 10th Ave.
Room 159-S
Topeka, Kansas 66612 [directions]

Let your senators know that it is important to you that on farm sales of raw milk remains as is. A phone call is much more effective than an email. And remember to keep the conversation polite and to-the-point.
