Today the Governator signed a new law:
Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed into law on Tuesday a bill that extends voter-approved mandates for the humane treatment of egg-laying hens in California and could affect living conditions for birds nationwide.
Prop. 2, however, applied only to hens in the state. The bill signed by the governor means that farms outside California will have to abide by the Golden State’s humane treatment law if they want to sell eggs here.
“By ensuring that all eggs sold in California meet the requirements of Proposition 2, this bill is good for both California egg producers and animal welfare,” the governor said.
OK – 1) how are they going to enforce this idiocy? 2) how much will it cost to have egg inspectors? 3) and they will be enforcing chicken conditions everywhere in the world? 4) and who will pay? yet more of the idiots who continue to live in California apparently.
Here’s an idea. Stop worrying about chickens and start acting like adults and pay your bills.
P.S. What about the chickens you eat?
