Podcast: An Egg-Citing Bill, Rating Federal Policymakers

CapitolToday I posted the latest installment of the “Animals & Politics” podcast, hosted by Patrick Ferrise, in which we discuss the new legislation in Congress to improve the treatment of egg-laying hens, and our 2011 ratings for federal lawmakers and the Obama administration. We have an unusual alliance between animal welfare groups and the egg industry, and a unique opportunity this year to pass consensus-driven legislation to help hundreds of millions of hens nationwide. We also have to measure the outcomes on animal protection issues at the federal level in the previous year, and having yardsticks such as the 2011 Humane Scorecard allows us to chart our progress and take stock of where we are as a movement. I hope you’ll take a listen to today’s podcast by clicking here, and then take action by asking your members of Congress to support and co-sponsor H.R. 3798, the Egg Products Inspection Act Amendments of 2012.
