Utah Senate Bill 147 would prohibit the confinement of egg-laying hens in an enclosure that is not a cage-free housing system or that has less usable floor space per hen than as required by the 2017 edition of the United Egg Producers' Animal Husbandry Guidelines for U.S. Egg-Laying Flocks: Guidelines for Cage-Free Housing. The bill would also prohibit the sale or transport of eggs or egg products that the business owner knows or should know were produced by an egg-laying hen that was confined in a manner prohibited by the bill. The legislation would take effect January 1, 2025.
