**Florida Ag Commissioner Wilton Simpson, Senator Jay Collins, and Representative Danny Alvarez announced the filing of legislation to support Florida agriculture and Florida’s farmers, ranchers, and growers.

www.morningagclips.com reports the legislation would expand options for customers to apply for and renew concealed weapons and other professional licenses; prohibit the manufacture or sale of “cultivated meat;” expand consumer protections and transparency across a number of regulated industries, and more.



**U.S. egg production totaled 9.3 billion during November, up 4% from November 2022.

Production included just over eight billion table eggs and 1.28 billion hatching eggs.

The average number of layers during November totaled 390 million, 3% higher than last year.

November egg production per 100 layers was 2,385 eggs, 1% higher than a year earlier.

Total layers in the U.S. on December 1 were 389 million, up three percent from a year ago.

**The National Ag Statistics Service is looking for feedback on its estimating programs.

The agency says NASS will also consider all available information, including public input, when determining whether to add or remove specific programs when selecting the individual states included in each commodity program.

With data collection for the 2022 Census of Agriculture complete, the program review is now underway.


Send comments about a specific program, along with contact information, to nass@usda.gov. Put NASS Program Review in the subject line and submit by January 5.
