      Default Recent Illinois Reptile Law

      I didn't see this until today, but an ostensibly pro-reptile bill has been signed into law in Illinois (see Governor Quinn Signs the Herptiles-Herps Act! | United States Herpetoculture Alliance). I have not yet read the actual text of the act, but if it is as advertised, it is nice to see something positive happening in government for a change. I have to admit, I'm not a huge fan of Quinn (although he's much better than what we have had), but good for him if he made a conscious and informed decision to sign this bill.

      Wow, a pro-herp law? I'm going to have to read through that. It's good to see USHerp doing something really (potentially) positive. I wonder what Brian Potter and the other IL herp people have to say about it.

      BREAKING NEWS!!!
      Today, Illinois Governor Pat Quinn signed SB 902, the Illinois Herptiles-Herps Act, into law. 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.
      SB 902 will lift the current ban on keeping of large constrictors and improves existing law with respect to the keeping of venomous snakes. Most importantly, it removes reptiles completely from the Illinois Dangerous Animals Act.

      Special thanks to Scott Ballard, Natural Heritage Biologist/Herpetologist, Illinois Department of Natural Resources, who drafted and edited this bill over many years and who sought and considered extensive feedback from the reptile community in Illinois.

      Its great to see people are doing some good to help the herp- community.
