Action of the Month: Contact Your State Rep
State Senate Passes Senate Bill 174, Gives Egg Industry Six More Years to Comply
Last month, the Michigan senate narrowly passed Senate Bill 174 , which will delay cage-free requirements for egg-laying hens until 2025 leaving hens to suffer in tiny wire cages for another six years. This disappointing turn of events comes after the industry has already been given 10 years to comply (since the 2009 law passed to phase out cages). Please call the office of your state representative and ask them to oppose the bill because it delays protections for hens for too long. Click Here to find your state representative.
