Rutledge Fights to End Californias Restrictive Egg Regulations

MGN Online

Arkansas is challenging a California law requiring egg producers to comply with California's farming regulations to sell eggs in California.

"California's attempt to impose their regulations on Wisconsin farmers is overreaching and unconstitutional", said Attorney General Schimel. The lawsuit also states that California's requirements violate the interstate commerce clause of the U.S. Constitution and that federal law supersedes them.

Thirteen states have asked the U.S. Supreme Court to block a California law requiring eggs sold in the Golden State to be sourced from hens that have enough space to lie down, stand up, turn around and fully stretch out out in their cages, according to the Associated Press.

"By its extraterritorial regulation of egg producers, California has single-handedly increased the costs of egg production nationwide by hundreds of millions of dollars each year", the lawsuit reads.

A federal appeals court panel rejected similar claims previous year in a separate case, ruling that the opposition failed to show California's law would affect more than just individual farmers.

5.8k-kg coke found on ship carrying bananas in Colombia
The drug traffickers had concealed over 5,000 bundles of cocaine within one of six containers in a consignment of bananas. This is the second largest ever seizure of cocaine by Spanish authorities.

Neither the Iowa Attorney General's Office nor the Iowa governor's office had a comment on the lawsuit late Monday. Today's filing in the U.S. Supreme Court answers this by providing a careful economic analysis that establishes the impact of these burdensome regulations.

Missouri and Iowa were joined in the lawsuit by Alabama, Arkansas, Indiana, Louisiana, Nebraska, Nevada, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Texas, Utah and Wisconsin.

IN joins 11 other states in a legal challenge against the state of California over egg production regulations. Thirty percent of those out-of-state eggs came from Iowa, the nation's top egg producer.

"Arkansans care deeply about the quality of the products they produce", said Attorney General Rutledge. About 13 percent of California's egg imports came from Missouri, the second highest percentage cited in the lawsuit.
