    Awesome - congrats and good luck.

    My advice:

    Prepare by making an outline. Come up with 3 KEY points that you want people to take away and remember and pass along. Support each of them by 1-2 facts.

    Make it factual. Short and sweet. Easy to remember.

    Think about ways to make it compelling to NON-reptile keepers. I.e.,
    - it's setting a bad precedent
    - it's destroying jobs
    - it's taking money out of the economy
    - etc...

          Just remember on the news and tv in general you only got like 1-3 minutes or so. The material should be prioritzed with that in mind... and I don't know what to add personally but definitly bring up the fact that if anything only 1 snake [burm] has shown to be problematic in the glades and that the snake industry, which pythons and boas make up a lot of the top 10 'starter and newbie snakes' (next to corns the ball python and red tail boa have to be in the top 5!) is a billion dollar+ industry in which people are paying their taxes (or most) just like everyone else!

          Hmm, this is really a good thing for us though. Props to you and I hope you do well!

            One more thing just a quick reminder that the info that they are baseing there bill on the data is flawed. We all know here in the US that the snakes here at 60's and 50's are slowing and going into hibernation. Boas and python these are fatal.

                Ok, after talking to USARK, they said not to talk to the news since the news will glorify the story. I gave the news rep. that contacted me to call USARK direct along with a few others that are qualified.

                I'm keeping my fingers crossed and just trying to help as much as I can.

                  This would be my fear , I'd go on TV and the News people find a way to make you look like a fool.
                  They'd possibly tape it and edit it to make you look stupid or if live they
                  would use loaded questions side step real issues and talk
                  about crazy dangerous Pythons etc... never allowing you
                  a chance to hardly address the points

                      Re: I need help (i am going on the news)

                      I sent a copy of the note from USARK that was for Obama to my Seneters here in Port,OR. to see if they can get the bill stopped. The note to FOXNEWS came back and said mailbox full. I'm praying and hoping that it doesn't pass. I have a show next month her in Port. and majority of the snakes there are Boas and Pythons(BP's)
