CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Raw milk from Nye County's Amargosa Valley won't be showing up on store shelves in Las Vegas anytime soon.

Existing law confines the sale of certified raw milk to the county where it is produced.

Gov. Brian Sandoval on Thursday vetoed AB209.

The bill would have allowed raw milk certified by a county milk commission to be sold anywhere in the state.

In his veto message, Sandoval cites health concerns about unpasteurized milk.

He says the Food and Drug Administration, American Medical Association and Nevada's state health officer agree that the bill presents "significant public health risks."

He says for those reasons he cannot support it.
