(Washington, D.C.) -- Here’s a question to ponder when considering possible government action in the new year:  Is there any chance that later this month, the U.S. Department of Agriculture will propose anything close to real reform of federal milk market orders?

According to Citizens Against Government Waste’s (CAGW) latest investigative report Milk Market Order Reform: Watered Down or Real?, the answer is not likely.  The report reveals how America’s antiquated milk market order program artificially inflates the price paid for dairy products.

On Wednesday, January 14, 1998, CAGW will host a small, informal briefing to discuss our latest report and the need to reform the milk market order program.  Advance copies of the report will be available at the briefing.  Food and refreshments will be served.

The briefing will be held at 10:00 a.m. in the Potomac Conference Room at the law offices of McKenna and Cuneo, 1900 K Street, N.W. (located on the corner of 19th and K Streets).
