    Currently in Committee - H.R. 669: To prevent the introduction and establishment of nonnative wildlife species that negatively impact the economy, environment, or other animal species' or human health, and for other purposes.

    The bill has been posted on http://www.gbwf.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=228 as well as addditonal links that provide more information. We need to see that is killed in Committee and does not make it further.

    I have added the pdf to my domain, http://www.gbwf.org/US_H_669_1.pdf - must read as if you keep any thing other than chickens, you will be affected.

    Visit the PIJAC website http://www.pijac.org/i4a/pages/index.cfm?pageid=504 , I also recommend joining as they are one of the few who have direct contact with Capitol Hill.

    Contact your Rep, but please, be respectful and professional. I hate this more than anyone, but we cannot let our anger and emotion get in the way.

    I love how this administration is all about job creation and stimulus, should this bill be passed, a large number of jobs (including mine) will be lost.

    This is probably dumb, but I don't exactly understand what this means, can some one explain it a little more "normal" for me on what it means?
