Scope and Content Note
Bill files consist of any bills heard by the committee, and usually include materials such as bill analyses, letters of support
or opposition, amendments, record of votes, and other working papers. Within the purview of agriculture, the committee members
heard bills on various subjects including, but not limited to pesticide and fertilizer regulation, humane euthanasia and slaughter
of livestock, seed laws, hemp, food safety, and air and water quality.
A subject frequently addressed by legislation within this series is the well-being of egg-laying hens. For example AB1437
(2009-2010) prohibited the sale of eggs from chickens not kept in accordance with existing humane standards. Thanks to much
community support, the bill passed. The bill was chaptered on July 6, 2010.
