Direct-to-Consumer Sales 

BISMARCK – A bill legalizing the direct-to-consumer sales of raw milk passed the North Dakota State House Wednesday for a second time. 

House Bill 1515, the “raw milk” bill, originally passed the House. After Senate amendments it was referred to a conference committee.  

After slight changes in conference committee the bill passed the House by a vote of 83-10 and will be returned to the Senate again. 

“With much discussion on this bill, we believe that we have improved it,” said Rep. Jay Fisher, R-Dis. 5, Minot. “We think it’s in excellent shape now to send it across the aisle again. We’ve had a lot of opinions on this.” 

Proponents called the bill a food freedom bill, while arguments on whether or not raw milk is safe had taken to the floor.
