A call to arms … against milk bills
The executive director of the Arkansas Hospitality Association has issued a call to action to anyone who’s got a beef with dairy farm relief legislation.
In an e-mail to would be opponents of legislation designed to subsidize small dairy farmers in the state when prices fall, Montine McNulty says the measures would raise the cost of all dairy products.
The bills are slated for consideration Tuesday before the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Forestry and Economic Development. McNulty’s e-mail urges those opposed to the bills to show up and say so at the meeting.
House Bill 1451 by Rep. Johnny Hoyt of Morrilton and a companion bill, Senate Bill 934 by Sen. David Wyatt of Batesville, would add a fee to the wholesale milk price to provide subsidies for struggling dairy farmers.
