          More....

          Great Job... But it's NOT Over!!

          Congratulations on a Job Well Done with HR669... but that was just the first Battle. We are fighting a war!

          The effort put forth by the Reptile Nation in opposing HR669 was nothing less than monumental. A real letter campaign like that hasn't been seen in a long time. It made a HUGE impression. USARK is so very proud that the community has pulled together like never before to fight this bill. We gained an important preliminary victory... but this is far from over. It was just round one.

          USARK has learned that the Defenders of Wildlife, Humane Society of the United States and The Nature Conservancy are going to meet with Delegate Bordallo's Subcommittee Staff in early May. The word is that they will be discussing a rewrite of HR669. They are expected to actually change the bill very little. The idea is to cut deals with the biggest opponents of the bill. We believe any proposal that involves a "white list" or a complicated permit system is a Deal Breaker for the Reptile Nation. That scenario we believe would eliminate the majority of animals and most hobbyist breeders. USARK will never endorse a deal that sacrifices any of our brothers and sisters.

          This NEW bill is likely to be reintroduced under a new number in order to lose the stigma of HR669 as a tainted bill. It will cause confusion, but USARK will keep the Reptile Nation apprised of the facts as they develop.

          Stay tuned to the latest developments on the USARK website. Prepare yourself for battle.

                    The list as in? The list of pets allowed? or list of not allowed?

                    I see Texas Horned Lizard is on the list.
                    I'm confused, is Texas no longer part of the US? Has it become Mexico? LOL!

                          That list is what is already considered invasive BEFORE anything becomes of HR 669. If it should pass these will be considered part of the black first.

                              Domestic Cat is also on the list. Thats fine let them add those, while they are at it, add every race of human not American Indian.

                              They can add the Dog and Cat. That will just have more ppl against it, therefore making more fuss and comfirming it not getting passed.
