This bill would have banned the cruel practice of confining pigs in gestation crates. The bill would have prevented using any confinement method preventing pigs from turning around or laying down. Gestation crates are cruel and inhumane. Yet Governor Chris Christie vetoed the passed bill. The bill, S. 1921, passed the state Assembly by a vote of 60 to 5 and the state Senate by a vote of 29 to 4 in May. It had overwhelming support by both Democrats and Republicans. 89 percent of voters were in favor of Christie signing the measure into law.
