A Look At Prop 2
The Santa Rosa Press- Democrat takes a look at Prop 2 this morning. That's the one that will prohibit keeping chickens in small cages, among other things. The P-D also takes a look at Sonoma County's egg industry.
As I mentioned earlier on, I'm sympathetic to the issue, but not sure how I'll vote on that one. After reading those two articles I'm leaning pretty much against Prop 2.
First of all, the price of eggs will almost certainly go up- cage free eggs costing $1.00 more than caged as it is. Food prices are already soaring. Not something we need to help along by voting for higher prices. I'm also worried about all or part of the state's egg industry moving out of state should this proposition pass.
There's still time to hear more arguments for or against so I won't commit myself to a yes or no vote just yet.
