    Came across this article and found it to be an interesting read about state laws and the impact across the nation.

    Does a state have the right to impose its laws on other states when it comes to commerce?

    Thought it would be an interesting discussion.

    CA. has a right to have higher standards for growers in their own state and also can have a higher standard for what is sold. If out of state producers want to do business in the state should they have to comply?
    The auto industry complies with emission standards and produces cars just to be sold in CA. So if the egg producers want to do business in CA. Shouldn't they have to comply as well? Its a cost of doing business, isn't it?
    If outside producers decide not to comply, egg prices would skyrocket in CA. and decrease due to increased supply in other states.

    Also does law apply to anything made with eggs in it as well?

    If we're going to say states can't regulate their own immigration because that's the Fed's job don't we have to say the same for interstate commerce?
