For those of you who live in MI, please write to your reps to not pass this. Often what happens in one state happens in others too, so we should all care even if we don’t live in MI.
From US ARK "A “dangerous reptile” bill was introduced on December 1, 2020. House Bill 6455 (HB6455) is sponsored by Representative Jim Ellison and was referred to the House Agriculture Committee.
HB6455 would classify the below reptiles as “dangerous reptiles.” The bill bans future ownership and breeding of these reptiles (except for a few exceptions including AZA zoos). It does allow a form of grandfathering (at great expense) if current owners register their animals, purchase liability insurance (which will cost hundreds to thousands annually), and comply with the stipulations included in the bill (PIT tags, inventory, caging requirements, signage, etc.)." https://usark.org/2020-mi-alert/
