Feinstein's Egg Bill Blasted By Animal Protection Organizations

"Last year very few Senators were willing to jump in the middle of an ongoing price-fixing scandal just to placate an egg industry trade association and a co-opted humane organization," said Miller.  "We expect this reluctance will continue this year."  

Dimming the bill's prospects even further is that the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) is now using funds to defend itself in a major Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) lawsuit.  At risk are literally millions of dollars in charitable donations.

"Should alleged lawbreakers be allowed to dictate federal policy?  We don't think so.  And we're confident that most lawmakers will feel likewise," said Miller.

Widespread Opposition From Animal Advocates

In addition to the Humane Farming Association, opponents of the Rotten Egg Bill include Friends of Animals, United Poultry Concerns, Last Chance for Animals, Action for Animals, PETA, Northwest Animal Rights Network, Defend Animals Coalition, Political Animals, Maple Farm Sanctuary, Georgia Animal Rights and Protection, Canadians for the Ethical Treatment of Food Animals, Vegan Society of Peace, Humane Farming Action Fund, Sunnyskies Bird and Animal Sanctuary, SAFE, Animals Unlimited, Action Volunteers for Animals, Massachusetts Animal Rights Coalition, Purpose Group International, Chicken Run Rescue, Pasado Safe Haven, Associated Humane Societies, and the vast majority of rank-and-file animal advocates.
