The New Jersey Assembly has passed A.3250/S.1921 by a vote of 60 to 5. A.3250/S.1921 will prohibit the confinement of breeding pigs in crates in a manner that prevents the animal from being able to turn around freely, lie down, stand up, or fully extend its limbs, except as may be required for (1) medical research, (2) veterinary examination, testing, individual treatment, or an operation, or other veterinary procedures, (3) transportation of the animal, (4) an exhibition or educational program, including but not necessarily limited to, a 4-H program, county or State fair, or rodeo, (5) animal husbandry purposes, provided the confinement is temporary and for no more than eight hours in any 24-hour period, (6) humane slaughtering of the animal in accordance with the laws, and rules and regulations adopted pursuant thereto, concerning the slaughter of animals, and (7) proper care during the 10-day period prior to the expected date of the gestating sow giving birth.

The bill now heads to the Senate for concurrence, then to Gov. Chris Christie.
