To revise a <a href="http://www.michiganvotes.org/2009-HB-5127">2009 law</a> that imposed additional farm animal care regulations and fees on producers to be phased-in over several years, by delaying enforcement of rules on egg-laying hens from April 1, 2020 to Oct. 12, 2025. The bill would also establish a legislative "finding" that the rules against narrow chicken confinement are needed to protect consumers "from increased risk of food borne illness".
