Wisconsin gov 'assumes' he will sign raw milk bill

Gov. Jim Doyle says he "assumes" he will sign into law a bill that would legalize limited sales of raw milk in Wisconsin.

Doyle said Friday that unless there's something in the measure passed by the Legislature that he doesn't already know about, he will sign it into law.

Doyle says he thinks the Legislature did a good job striking a balance between the concerns of the dairy industry worried about an outbreak of diseases caused by drinking of unpasteurized milk and supporters who say raw milk tastes better and has nutritional benefits.

Under the bill, the sales would be limited to on farms only. The legalization would be good only through the end of 2011 while a more permanent plan is developed.
