California to make big decisions on poultry welfare

From 2015, no battery eggs will be sold anymore in the state California. The bill A.B.1437 to make this decision official was signed last week by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Co-initiator and driving force behind this decision is the Humane Society of the United States, an organization with 11 mln members and a budget of around US$120 mln.

The organization employs its own veterinarians and - reportedly - some 60 lawyers who are assisting in the enforcement of socio-political goals.
