CONFINEMENT OF PREGNANT FARM PIGS. INITIATIVE STATUTE. Adds section 599g to the Penal Code to make it a misdemeanor for a person to confine or tether a pregnant farm pig in a manner that prevents the animal from turning around freely. Does not apply to the prebirthing time period, reasonable veterinary procedures, and public events. Effective January 1, 2008. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local governments: This measure would result in probably minor local and state criminal justice enforcement and prosecution costs, offset in part by increased fine revenue.
