Ohioans for Humane Farms, an affiliate of the Humane Society of the United States, said it has more than enough signatures to put an animal-housing initiative to Ohio voters in the fall, according to Meatingplace.

The group is asking voters to support a constitutional amendment that would require new animal housing standards for egg-laying hens, pregnant sows and veal calves — similar to California’s Prop 2.

A spokesperson has said that the group has 450,000 signatures in hand and expects to turn in more than 500,000 on the June 30 deadline. The minimum requirement is 402,275 signatures.
