Actually Syst3m, I don't know that there is a major bill on this, but If you do some checking, you will find that a number of local governments are sliding this through. There was a posting not too long ago from someone in Colorado that was trying to find a home for their snakes .. their municipality had banned pretty much everything. There was another in eastern canada that had two or three days to get rid of their snakes or face fines.
No, they won't win a major attack on herp owning, but if they keep sneaking these laws here and there, soon they will be able to win. Our defence is to stay vigilent and be heard, otherwise the governments will only hear the whiners and act on their demands.
