A bill (click here for full text) was introduced in the US House of representatives today regarding the export of constrictors listed on the Injurious Wildlife list of the Lacey Act. It is sponsored by John Flemming (R-LA). A bill number has not been assigned as of yet, but we expect to see a bill number and sub-committee assignment within 24 hours. John Flemming is Chairman of the US House Natural Resources Committee, Sub-Committee on Fisheries, Wildlife, Oceans and Insular Affairs. US Herpetoculture Alliance expects the committee assignment will be to Chairman Flemming’s committee.
There will likely be a Sub-Committee hearing this summer.
