Amendment to Chapter 47????

Postby richardrojas on Wed Feb 15, 2012 2:23 pm

How the amendment to Chapter 47 Prohibiting Sale and Possession of Live Exotic Animals will affect our hobby? I am just curious to know if any member knew about this. A lot of harmless animals including fish will be ban on the ownership and sale. So far I am part of another society that have been fighting against other type of ban but know goverment agency are getting to far. Would like to know your opinion. http://docs.com/I5TZ

Good(ish) news. I received an e-mail reply from the co-sponsor of the bill, Melissa Sargent. She informed me that her original intent was to mirror the ordinances already in effect in the city of Madison so that it was a uniform policy throughout the county. She admits that the amendment does not accomplish this, and claims to be working closely with another county supervisor, the board of health, and the county's legal team to draft an amendment that addresses the ambiguous language, etc.
