Senate Judiciary Committee Hearing on Milk Competition Saturday, Sept. 19
From the Wall Street Journal: Farmers Want Industry Probe
Dairy farmers, stung by a price-depressing glut of milk, are pressing federal antitrust regulators to investigate competition in the industry.
A group of dairy farmers is slated to meet with antitrust enforcers Thursday in Washington, and Christine Varney, chief of the Justice Department's antitrust division, is scheduled to appear Saturday at a Vermont hearing of the Senate Judiciary Committee, which is populated with several Democrats from big dairy states such as Wisconsin, Minnesota and New York. . . .
Here's the announcement for the hearing, with the list of speakers:
NOTICE OF COMMITTEE FIELD HEARING
