Minutes for HB2102 - Committee on Agriculture and Natural Resources

Short Title

Updating egg repackaging requirements for retailers.

Minutes Content for Thu, Mar 11, 2021

Chairperson Kerschen opened the hearing on HB2102.

Tamera Lawrence of the Revisor of Statutes Office explained the bill.

Kelsey Olson spoke in support of the bill.  She told the committee that the proposed amendments contained in the bill will allow greater flexibility for retailers by allowing eggs to be repacked as grade A under proper conditions without adding unnecessary labeling requirements for eggs that can be verified as high quality.  (Attachment 1)

Mike O 'Neal testified in favor of the bill.  He explained that HB2102 would clarify the law and appropriately apply the current law's labeling and reporting provisions to those eggs that cannot be graded higher than Grade B.  Grade B eggs are rarely sold in retail stores and commonly used for commercial liquid and powdered egg products.(Attachment 2)

After some discussion, Chairperson Kerschen closed the hearing on HB2102.
