Senate Ag to hold hearing on egg bill

Senate Agriculture Committee Chairman Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich., announced today that the committee will hold a hearing next Thursday on the Egg Products Inspection Act Amendments of 2012.

The highly controversial bill is the product of an agreement between the United Egg Producers and the Humane Society of the United States to establish national-level cage sizes and production conditions for egg-laying chickens.
