Part 2 of our special four-week Election Ballot Debate Series, hosted along with UMass Boston and The Boston Globe.
A WBUR poll last week shows 66 percent of likely voters support the initiative — 25 percent oppose it.
We asked the two groups involved in this issue to offer their representative to participate in this debate.
Miss the debate? You can listen to it atop this post or rewatch the live stream video below:
Paul Shapiro, vice president of farm animal protection for the Humane Society of the U.S. He tweets @pshapiro. He's representing Citizens for Farm Animal Protection, which put forward the ballot question.
Bill Bell, general manager of the New England Brown Egg Council. No formal ballot committee has been formed in opposition to Question 3, but the council drafted the main opposition argument for the Secretary of State's Voter Guide.
