Dear 

I hope you will vote Yes on the Egg Products Inspection Act Amendments of 2013 to improve the lives of hundreds of millions of egg-laying hens in our nation.

This amendment would phase in more space for egg-laying hens over an ample time period, and is supported by all the key stakeholders the egg industry, veterinary groups, animal welfare groups, and consumer groups. It offers regulatory certainty and stability to egg producers and consumers in the face of an emerging patchwork of conflicting state laws, and ensures a minimum standard of welfare for 280 million hens across the United States.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
