|To:||All Senate members|
|Subject:||Pennsylvania Dairy Future Commission|
In the near future, I plan to introduce legislation to establish the Pennsylvania Dairy Future Commission. This Commission will review the status of the dairy industry in the Commonwealth and make recommendations on supporting dairy’s future in Pennsylvania.
Membership of the Commission will include the chairs and minority chairs of the Agriculture and Rural Affairs Committees in the Senate and House of Representatives, appointments by the Senate, House and Governor, Secretaries of Agriculture, Penn DOT, DEP, DCED, and Revenue, as well as, representatives of the Farm Bureau, Center for Dairy Excellence, the Milk Marketing Board, the Center for Rural Pa and the Pennsylvania State University.
A report will be issued by the Commission of its findings and recommendations no more than one year after the enactment of the legislation.
Please join me in co-sponsoring this important issue.
Introduced as SB585
