I found another proposed bill that may impact us greatly yet I found it by accident. Its LD366 and involves raw milk sales. I’ll forward you the farm bureau e mail. Its down at the bottom under new legislation. I’m calling my local legislator – he’s listed as a sponsor. He’s also a sponsor on LD330 we discussed. I have an email in to Jon Olson, the farm bureau lobbyist, who is our point of information.
LD 366 An Act Regarding the Sale of Raw Milk (Kumiega-Deer Isle, Berry-Bowdoinham,
Malaby-Hancock, McCabe-Skowhegan, Newendyke-Litchfield, O’Brien-Lincolnville, Pilon-Saco,
Clarifies that a license is not required of a person who produces
and sells milk only on the premises. “Premises” includes a motor vehicle and a portable
farm stand owned by the producer if sales on these premises are made by the producer
or an employee.
