A bill that would have prohibited the proliferation of commercial animal feeding operations (CAFOs) with annual revenues over $100,000 has died in the California Assembly.

Assembly Bill 2764 by Assemblyman Adrin Nazarian, D-Van Nuys, failed to receive a hearing in the Assembly Agriculture Committee before an end-of-April legislative deadline for fiscal bills to pass out of their first house policy committees, and as a result is dead for the year, the California Cattlemen's Association reports in a legislative bulletin.

The bill was sponsored by Direct Action Everywhere, an animal-rights group, and strongly opposed by the CCA.

For a cattle industry discussion of the legislation's demise, listen to the latest episode of CCA's Sorting Pen podcast.
