If only city officials were as open-minded as the rest of the state. I'm thinking mine may be one of the few that has completely banned reptiles in NY.
Don't get me started on the whole thing again. It is good to hear the state hasn't banned them completely, yet. I agree with the notification law, it's for their protection.
As for the A07375 bill, I don't think it's come up to vote yet either.
:Yes, the notification law passed. And realisitically, it's not a bad idea(as long as towns don't go ballistic and get paranoid). I actually spoke with a DEC Environmental Conservation Enforcement officer who had no problems with private individuals owning venomous species...as long as they do it responsibly.
:I haven't gotten a confirmation that the A07375 bill was officially defeated though.
