Biggest things that can be done by everyone, is to make people you know in Chicago aware of what is going on. What the Alderman and commity ar doing is trying to pass this un-apposed by anyone, that is why it is listed in an obscure place. Tell everyone this does not only effect Herp keepers, But it effects anyone who enjoys the company of an animal that isn't a dog or cat. This includes birds, mice, hamsters, Guinnie Pigs, rabbits, All herps, Possibly fish too. Anything that could be considered exotic.
If you know someone in Chicago have them go to their Alderman and tell them to vote no on this subject. Once this gets to be public knowledge the harder it will be to get passed.
