NJ Lawmakers to Override Gestation Crate-Ban Veto

Governor Chris Christie vetoed an anti-gestation crate bill passed by Jersey politicians, and now they’re attempting to override his political move.

Earlier this year, the New Jersey state Assembly and the Senate passed a bill that would outlaw the use of gestation crates on factory farms. Following the decision to eliminate the confining cages, Garden State governor, Christie Christie, vetoed the bill, a move that some critics, including state Senator Raymond Lesniak and television personality Martha Stewart, purported was a strategy to win the favor of out-of-state parties such as the Iowa-based National Pork Producers Council. According to nj.com, the Senate will attempt to override Christie’s veto on November 18. While two thirds of the legislators need to come to a consensus in order to override the governor—a feat that has never been accomplished during Christie’s tenure—some animal welfare advocates believe that it may happen due to the overwhelming support that the anti-gestation crate legislation received from politicians and the general public.
