WA state Senate Bill 5487/House Bill 1813 would actually make it legal and acceptable for egg producers to keep egg laying hens crammed into battery or colony cages 24/7. Egg producers are pushing this bill to try to undermine 1130, the ballot initiative that would end this cruel practice and would require egg laying hens to be given room to flap their wings and turn freely. For more on the ballot initiative and how you can help get this measure on the 2011 ballot in WA state: http://www.animallawcoalition.com/farm-animals/article/1679
Please call on Washington state Gov. Christine Gregoire to veto this bill. For more information about the bill: http://www.animallawcoalition.com/farm-animals/article/1680
