First of all, I believe these organizations who are fighting this bill are exaggerating the info they put on their sites to scare people into calling their representatives. I found some info on this site which is relatively neutral. It details the entire bill. http://www.opencongress.org/bill/111-h669/text The bill would ban importation of SOME species and also from driving them across state lines. You can also get a permit for those animals for "Aquarium display purposes". I really believe this bill is going to die anyway. Even if it passes the house, It will still need to be passed by the senate and signed by the president. I think their plate is full of more important things right now.
