This is terrible, politicians capitalizing on a minority hobby. What we're going to see here is big breeders and businesses paying, and a lot of the personal pet permited people are not gonna pay. Some will keep venomous anyway, others will not. The big businesses are going to lose money via local sales from the ones who do not pay.

For the ones who keep them unpermitted, this is going to bring more bad press into the venomous reptile world. I thought that being in Florida protected our rights to keep venomous snakes, but this may be the beginning of the end of venomous keeping in Florida.....

:HERALD-TRIBUNE (Sarasota, Florida) 02 May 02 Higher Fees
:Tourists who want to fish in Florida's rivers and lakes, people who want to keep poisonous snakes, and people who want to hold wildlife exhibitions will pay more under a bill that passed the House Friday.
: …
:License fees for keeping a venomous reptile or holding a wildlife exhibition would go from $5 to $100.
