"California Prevention of Farm Animal Cruelty Act" Prohibits confinement of farm animals in a manner that does not allow them to turn around freely, lie down, stand up, or fully extend their limbs.
Los Angeles Times editorial, Sept. 25, 2008: No on Proposition 2
"California eggs would become more expensive, and many consumers would simply buy the cheaper eggs laid by hens living in cramped conditions in neighboring states or in Mexico. As a result, we fear the result of Proposition 2's passage would not be better treatment of hens but merely the export of their mistreatment. We recommend a no vote."Copyright © 2015, Los Angeles Times
