There’s even more that will give farmers heartburn. A proposed Massachusetts law on egg production mimics the vague language of a 2008 California ballot initiative called Proposition 2, bankrolled by the Humane Society of the United States (unaffiliated with Bay State pet shelters). It’s unclear to California egg farmers what kind of housing they can legally use, and the Humane Society of the United States has given shifting answers. And when California farmers have sought to gain clarity in the court system, the Humane Society has opposed them.
If California egg farmers can’t figure out what barns they are allowed to build, they may simply go out of business. But that’s exactly what animal liberation radicals hope for.
For them, there is no animal product produced on any farm under any system that is “humane” enough. Not even if the hen stayed in a 5-star hotel.

State bill would threaten farmers
Thanks CA. It's not enough that you fuck up your own state. But now you are providing the model to screw up other states.
