Congress Considers Overriding California Egg Ban
Animal activists have lobbied for laws in California that ban conventionally produced eggs—the vast majority of eggs in the country—from being sold in grocery stores. A similar law passed in Massachusetts banning the sale of conventionally produced eggs and pork will take effect in 2022. The laws were designed to raise costs for farmers and consumers. The Protect Interstate Commerce Act, currently being considering as an amendment to the Farm Bill, would roll back these bans.
