The “Fowl” Practice Of Humane Labeling: Proposed Amendments To Federal Standards Governing Chicken Welfare And Poultry Labeling Practices, Latravia Smith

Sustainable Development Law & Policy

Chickens raised specifically for meat production are the world’s most intensively farmed land animals.

Policing Federal Supremacy: Preemption And Common Law Damage Claims As A Ceiling Regulatory Floor, Sam Kalen 2018 University of Florida Levin College of Law

Policing Federal Supremacy: Preemption And Common Law Damage Claims As A Ceiling Regulatory Floor, Sam Kalen

Yet that dynamic is essential to understanding the Clean Air Act’s “citizen suit” provision and Congress’s decision to preserve certain state common law ...
