Herp Alliance - On March 6, 2013, West Virginia Senators Laird, Kessler, Stollings, Fitzsimmons and Williams introduced Senate Bill 466, entitled “Dangerous Wild Animals Act.”

On April 2, 2013 passed the West Virginia Senate by a vote of 32-1. The US Herpetoculture Alliance has been in direct contact this morning with Senator Laird who is the primary sponsor. Senator Laird is also the Chairman of Senate Natural Resources Committee, and the Senate Majority “Whip”. He has made us aware that SB 466 (Committee Substitute) was reported favorably by the Natural Resources Committee on March 6, 2013; and out of the Senate Finance Committee where it subsequently passed a full vote on the Senate Floor yesterday.

We need your help to STOP this wide ranging bill. Read the full update after the jump.
