  • Last day to call in for S373! Let's get this done!!!

    Last Call In Day- Make It Count!
    December 2 is the LAST Call In Day! Make It Count!!! Stand up and fight S373 aka The Python Ban! If passed as written it will put ALL pythons on the Injurious Wildlife List of the Lacey Act. That means Ball Pythons, Chondros, Carpets, Blackheads... EVERYTHING! This is not just about big pythons. This is federal legislation that will affect the entire country. S373 will be heard before the Senate Environment & Public Works (EPW) Committee on December 3rd, 2009. YOU can stop this bill if YOU want to. Call and oppose this unnecessary bill. Do not procrastinate. The survival of the Reptile Nation depends on what is going to happen in this committee. Call Now!!

    CALL IN DAY: 12/2 ***LAST DAY***

    My name is _____. I oppose S373. Although I support and appreciate efforts to preserve the Everglades, there is NO evidence to show this bill will have any conservation effect on the Everglades. This bill will hurt American families in our state. It would Ban the captive bred trade in 40 species of pythons and destroy thousands of jobs in our state and across the country. Scientists have questioned the USGS report being used to justify this extreme proposal. Science should trump political expediency. Please oppose S373.

    Re: Last day to call in for S373! Let's get this done!!!


    I missed thecall in the other day so I am glad there is another. I'm not really political but this is something I must be part of. I will be placing a call today for sure. Nothing makes sense on this. Furtheremore, if they can take Pythons they can take anything, and once one is passed passing additional will be very easy.

    Remember guys: alone, I am one person, but together, we are hundreds and thousands strong and we can make a difference.

        I finally finished my calls. ...Work kept cropping up between calls.

        If you haven't called there are only five hours left. Do it now to help make a difference.

        This effects all of us.

        Call! Fax! Fight!
