Egg Wars: California Versus Missouri

Mar 5, 2014

Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster along with five other attorneys general have filed a lawsuit against the State of California for its regulations regarding cage sizes for chickens.

The original legislature, Proposition 2, was passed in 2008, which required cages to be nearly twice as large as most standard chicken cages. The follow up law requires all eggs sold in California to comply to these same conditions.

On today's Central Standard, we discuss why this is a concern for states like Missouri that sell eggs in California.
