The website provides information and updates to help legislators, consumers, foodservice executives and retailers learn more about the proposed legislation currently before Congress. The site features expanded sections that educate visitors on enriched colony housing, as well as congressional, agricultural, editorial, and scientific support for H.R. 3798, formerly known as the "Egg Products Inspection Act Amendments of 2012." The bill will create a uniform national standard for animal housing in the egg industry. The legislation already has more than 60 co-sponsors in the House of Representatives and is expected to be introduced in the Senate soon.
