My point is that the vast majority of Californians have not visited an egg farm... let alone done any research on the costs/benefits of Prop 2. So how are we qualified to make these decisions? Shouldn't these decisions be made by the California Department of Food and Agriculture?

Here is an academic study showing cost difference of about a dime per dozen eggs, and this doesn't even take into account simply providing somewhat larger cages as an alternative to "roaming free" (Pg 4 is the summary box):

So UC Davis has two contradictory reports... which puts us back to square one. As a voter... how are you supposed to decide which report is correct? Why not let the Department of Food and Agriculture make these decisions?
