The city I live in (Murrieta, CA) has a council meeting coming up this Tuesday and on the agenda is a discussion about a reptile restriction. Some of these restrictions are no snakes over 5 ft and limiting the number you can keep. So, if you all could please e-mail the person at the link and just give your support against such a ban it would really help a lot. It doesn't matter if you don't live in this area. I should also mention the reason for the ban is based on fear that a snake will get loose and harm the public. That's quoted out of todays paper. Thanks for your help everyone.
