As far as I can tell, farmers in 49 other states are free to raise their chickens as they see fit.

And they are free to sell their eggs in any state except CA.

Unless they comply with CA law on how to raise chickens.

CA compels nobody outside the state to behave in any particular way.

I don't see the issue.

I'm not a lawyer but it's hard for me to imagine this being a case for the Federal courts.

However,it'll be fun to watch the price of eggs skyrocket in California....couldn't happen to a nicer state!

Create an egg shortage - see how long it takes their citizens to cackle.

The key is whether it is preempted by federal statutory law. Clearly the feds have the power to regulate the egg trade under the interstate commerce clause. If they want to prohibit CA from doing this they can. But the question is whether they have already done so. I don’t think the CA law by itself violates the commerce clause. It doesn’t have anything to do with which state the eggs originate in.

13 states launch new legal challenge to California egg law

Interstate Commerce.

Hopefully Fagofornia will lose and have to pay the entire amount in damages.

>>More than a dozen states banded together Monday to ask the U.S. Supreme Court to block a California law requiring any eggs sold there to come from hens that have space to stretch out in their cages.

Cal passed a law supporting my ex-wife??????

This was settled by Wickard. Not sure SCOTUS will open that can of worms.

I’m getting eggs for $.79/dz. I’m not complaining.

Regardless, after this ridiculously stupid law went into effect, eggs went up at least a couple of bucks to roughly $5 a dozen.

Here is what I think.

1. I hate factory farming practices.

2. I hate raising animals in cramped and unsanitary quarters.

3. I think good stewardship is not being unnecessarily abusive or hard on animals.

4. The fact so many people today are so far away from the animals themselves and having to kill their own food makes them totally numb and okay with terrible megafarm standard operating procedures.

5. I certaimly don’t look to California to be the arbiter of morals for anyone else, they can go pound it. If they want to cause their own egg shortages and price spikes, fine by me.

Wait. I keep hearing that Kalifornia feeds us all and we’d all starve without their benevolence. Yet they import as many eggs as they produce. I’ll bet that’s true of other commodities.

I have proudly boycotted Calif products for 6 years now. Ever since a bs speeding ticket near Barstow from a lying cop.

Would be nice if they’d be concerned about unborn babies being able to stretch their legs after birth. I’m not concerned about chickens.

I don't see the issue.

The issue is the feral government uses the interstate commerce clause to obliterate the enumerated powers clause and force all states to enforce federal laws. If California is allowed to do this it is selective enforcement of the interstate commerce clause. The feral government always wants everything both ways.

So you're fine with California ignoring Article I, Section 8, Clause 3 in the Constitution?

Interesting.

The interstate commerce clause was originally created to address this sort of trade barrier. Before the constitution states enacted tariffs and other barriers against other states goods. I think California’s egg rules are unconstitutional.

Isn’t it an exception if the hens are from Mexico and are illegals?

Personally, I can’t tell any difference between eggs from California and eggs from anywhere else. So why have this law?
