Vote NO on Proposition (TBA)
“This initiative should be fiercely opposed by everyone who cares about farm animal suffering. HSUS’s collusion with the egg industry is disturbing. From legalizing battery cages to allowing as little as one square foot of space per hen — this initiative would be a disaster for millions of egg-laying hens who would still be left suffering in battery cages throughout California.”— Friends of Animals (FoA)
“Beware! This initiative is being painted in rosy terms, but don’t be fooled… What it would actually do is allow farms to keep egg-laying hens in cages until 2022, at which time factory farms would still be able to confine uncaged hens to massive, crowded sheds with only 1 square foot of space per bird.”— People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA)
“Time and again HFA has accurately identified fatal flaws in legislation advanced by HSUS.”— Animals 24-7
Watch: HFA’s National Director testifies against the egg industry’s legislation (AB 3021 Levine)
Assembly Bill 3021 (Levine) would codify the exact same hen housing guidelines contained in the Rotten Egg Initiative promoted by HSUS and United Egg Producers.
