Also, it is not $150 per species. You need to indicate what species you work with when you apply but there is no limit and you can call them anytime to add/delete species as your projects change.

Mary Bates is the point of contact at the Dept. of Agriculture. Here is a link to an older thread that discussed this subject. Her contact information is there as well as links to the permit applications.

Thanks for correcting the number of Species. We only mess with ball pythons so the permit was only for one species.

This link has all of the members of the committee on game and fisheries. I have spoken to a few of my local reps on the list, they have said its unlikely that this will get past the committee but as I told them, after what happened with HR511 passing committee I will not take that chance. The state senators can not help as this is only in the house.

Agreed. Contacting the Reps who make up this committee is what needs to be done. Way too early to do much else, especially collecting money for an attorney. What exactly is an attorney going to do at this point? Or at any point for that matter?

Personally there's no point to an attorney with it being in committee. Just being proactive to the matter, to me at least, will help more now than anything else. The few guys I spoke to today are willing to listen and have even agreed to meeting with me next week.
