The following was cut and pasted from an e-mail from the Humane Society. If you are interested,you can probably get additional information from the Humane Society's website. A bipartisan coalition of lawmakers just introduced legislation in Congress to improve the lives of hundreds of millions of egg-laying hens. H.R. 3798, The Egg Products Inspection Act Amendments of 2012, would require significantly more space plus environmental enrichments for these birds, along with banning forced starvation molting and providing consumers accurate information on cartons about how the birds were raised (e.g., "eggs from caged hens," or "eggs from cage-free hens"). Please make a brief, polite phone call today to Representative Tom Graves (202) 225-5211 , urging co-sponsorship for H.R. 3798, the Egg Products Inspection Act Amendments of 2012.
