I have been informed that Senator Schultz office is telling everyone who calls that I am telling you lies and mistruths about SB108 the Raw Milk bill.
Please, do not buy what they are selling. Here are the lies they are telling and the truth about them.
Lie 1. This bill is not and has not been in Senator Schultz committee since May.
Take a look at this link and you can see that SB108 is in fact sitting in his committee, it has been sitting in the committee since May.
Yes, Senator Schultz did not take over the committee until August, but that does not negate the fact that it has been six long months with zero action from Senator Schultz.
Lie 2. Senator Schultz supports Raw Milk
Yes, Senator Schultz did vote in favor of the raw milk bill when Governor Doyle was in office.
But, if Senator Schultz supports raw milk why has he not co-sponsored a bill (SB108) to legalize raw milk that has been available for co-sponsorship since last May? Why has he sat on this bill for six long months, since August, when he took over the AG committee? Why has he not scheduled any public hearings so that the people can express their thoughts on raw milk? Why has he not brought this bill up for a vote in his committee that he controls and has the power to do so?
Could Senator Schultz perhaps had voted for the Raw Milk bill previously knowing that Governor Doyle would veto it?
Something to think about.
Lie 3. This bill can not pass
A bill very similar to this passed in a much less friendly climate under Jim Doyle, yet Senator Schultz expects us to believe that this bill can not pass when both chambers and the governors seat is controlled by Republicans?
I'm not buying it.
Lie 4. This bill is being redrafted and will then come up for a vote.
Yes, there is a rumored proposal that an amendment to this bill is being written by the powerful Wisconsin Dairy Association.
The Wisconsin Dairy Association is one of the lead opponents to the legalization of Raw Milk, they want to do everything they can to keep Raw Milk under wraps.
Does that sound like an amendment that we want to wait around for? Does that sound like an amendment favorable to small raw milk producers and freedom?
Not to me.
So who is telling the lies here?
Senator Grothman wants this bill passed. Unlike Senator Schultz I do not want to wait for a bill with more regulations and less freedom, this bill is perfectly fine.
The fact of the matter is is that Schultz has been sitting on this bill for six months and even though he voted for it last time under Doyle he has not even signed on as a co-sponsor this time.
Ask him again why he is standing against the freedom of Wisconsinites. Demand that he bring S.B. 108, the Raw Milk bill, up for a vote immediately and move it out of his committee. Tell him to stop with the redirects.

P.S. Call and email Senator Schultz again and tell him that your not buying his side of the truth, 608-266-0703, [email protected]. If Senator Schultz is telling you any other lies, please reply to this email and let me know so that I can get you the true information.
As you already know the fight for the legalization of Raw Milk is heating up in Wisconsin. Farmers are being criminalized and our freedoms are being taken away.
Even if you do not drink raw milk, this fight should be very important to you.
If they can criminalize milk then they can criminalize other natural foods that they deem a threat to the establishment.
How long until they regulate your local farmers market?
You and I need to stand up and stop this nonsense right now!
Right now Senator Dale Schultz is stopping the legalization of Raw Milk. Senate Bill 108 has been stuck in his committee on Agriculture, Forestry, and Higher Education since May 26th 2011.
Why will Senator Dale Schultz not bring S.B. 108 up for a vote? Why will he not give the people of Wisconsin the freedom to choose what they drink?
Because of Senator Dale Schultz’ inaction, Amish raw milk farmer Vernon Hershberger faces maximum penalties of $13,000 in fines or 2 1/2 years in jail.
Does that sound like freedom to you?
As I have said before, what this really comes down to is individual rights. Do you own your body or does the government? Do you own your property or does the government?
I need you to call and email Senator Dale Schultz right now at608-266-0703, [email protected].
Ask him why he is standing against the freedom of Wisconsinites. Demand that he bring S.B. 108, the Raw Milk bill, up for a vote immediately and move it out of his committee.
If you own your body and your property, then the government has no right to tell you what you can and cannot consume. If you own your property then the government has no right to tell you what you can or cannot sell on your own property to willing consumers.
If they can stop you from drinking and selling raw milk then how long will it be before they come after your local farmers market?
Call and email Senator Dale Schultz right away at 608-266-0703,[email protected].
Tell him to stop standing against your freedom and bring Senate Bill 108 up for a vote right now!
