California's Proposition 2

California Egg Farmers Challenge Constitutionality of Proposition 2

Egg farmers claim the law is too vague.

November 19, 2012

California’s egg farmers have filed suit in Fresno County Superior Court seeking a determination that Proposition 2, which regulates egg-laying hen enclosures, is unconstitutionally vague. The Association of California Egg Farmers (ACEF) claims that farmers will be unable to sufficiently modify their housing facilities in time for the January 1, 2015 implementation date because the state has not yet provided guidelines for compliance.
