SC Legislature Want Higher Milk Prices

The Associated Press reports that the South Carolina House passed a bill to establish a board to set minimum prices for milk. Link.
Supporters of a board that would set up minimum prices for milk churned out a victory Wednesday in the House.

The House approved creating the board with a 66-47 vote after nearly two hours of debate from opponents who said it would drive up retail prices.

Supporters say they want to keep the state's dairy farmers solvent. They do not say whether they want children's parents to stay solvent. Luckily, the state has a governor who says he intends to veto the measure.
