H.B. 534, the "Raw Milk" Bill, was introduced into the Ohio House of Representatives in 2006. Sponsored by Representative Arlene Setzer,  the bill aimed to revise the law governing the gift or sale of raw milk to ultimate consumers.  It was due to be reintroduced in 2007 in both the house and senate, but never got enacted
