Former Assembly Member Rusty Areias, a political consultant with California Strategies, worked behind the scenes with lawmakers to address the issue.
"Anybody who has been in Sacramento for 15 minutes has to know that raw milk is a controversial issue," Areias said."Had they not low-balled this bill and [instead] let it go through the normal channels, it would never have passed."
