More Room To Roam For Meat & Egg Producing Animals
Would require farmers to provide more space for egg-laying hens, pigs and cows to move around. The law would also ban the sale of products from businesses that fail to meet those new standards.
Would potentially decrease tax dollars collected from farm businesses by several million dollars every year. Would cost the state $10 million annually to enforce.
A YES vote would require farmers to provide more space for egg-laying hens, pigs, and cows. California businesses would be banned from selling eggs, pork or veal that came from animals housed in ways that did not meet the new requirements.
A NO Vote would keep current minimum space requirements for egg-laying hens, pregnant pigs, and cows. Current ban on businesses in California selling eggs not meeting these space requirements for hens stay in place.
