Illinois has lift the Ban on large constrictors.

This is a big step and hopefully other states will follow.
Effective January 1, 2015, Illinois will have an historic law in effect and will be the only state in the US with a code section devoted exclusively to reptiles and amphibians.

As far as i know. It will be a state wide law but local laws may still enforce restriction. I am not really sure how that all going to work. I know Galsburg Ill has a flat out ban on all Boas and Pythons in city limits.

Looks like a big step in the right direction but it is still none to friendly to hot or large lizard keepers. Section 5-15 is pretty awesome.
