Proposition 12: Farm Animal Confinement Initiative Voting “Yes”

Voting “yes” forces meat, pork and egg producing farmers to use cages of a minimum size in order to sell their product. Business owners would not be allowed to sell these products if the cages are too small. The cages would have to be:

43-square-feet of floor space per calf raised for veal by 2020 24-square-feet of floor space per breeding pig by 2022 1-square-foot of floor space per egg-laying hen by 2020 the specification of floor space is to be determined in the United Egg Producure’s Animal Husbandry Guidelines by 2022

Currently, the guidelines recommend 1-square-foot to 1.5-square-feet. The requirements would not apply to medical research, but would apply to scientific or agricultural research. Proponents argue this could result in a decrease in state income tax from farms.

Voting “No”

A “no” would maintain current law, which forces farmers to use cages big enough to allow the animal to “lay down, stand up, fully extend limbs, or turn around.” Current law does not set minimum cage sizes in terms of square feet. It allows small cages in scientific or agricultural research. Opponents argue that this would cost $10 million annually to enforce, would likely raise veal, pork, and egg prices due to the cost of animal housing remodeling and by removing production from farmers who did not comply with the proposition in time.

Why can't the government provide direct home loans 2-4 %, providing stimulus, ability to keep payments stable?

- banks are not working
- government is providing money
- citizens need relief and a solid low rate loan would provide $$$ in everyone's pockets, not just people defaulting
- 10 year Tbill is at 3%.

the government has set up FHA,VA, and Rural housing. but where did you get the idea that there was 2-4% money available. There isn't. If that happens we a re in a long term depression and the fed funds rate drops to .
