Lacey Act Amendment.

Walter, you're not wrong. The Lacey Act is included with a broader group of potential laws, and as of 3/17 it passed in the house without changes. This could have very serious ramifications on the hobby if it passes. I read about it when I first heard it was part of the Competes Act. While it's aim seems to be at controlling invasive species it, like most laws of its kind, leaves a lot of room for interpretation. I've been surprised that there isn't more alarm about it.
I am afraid the Tropical Fish and other exotic pet groups are not concerned. Once this passes, it will change our hobby forever. It only takes a few minutes to contact your Senators.
