By using deliberately ambiguous wording and definitions, and throwing in phrasing like "Any other animal designated by the chief in rules adopted under this section", it pretty much means that they can ban anything they feel like banning, once the legislation is passed.

There was no mention made of venomous lizards, but you can bet that if you're found with Heloderma, you'll quickly find the law amended to include them, if that's what they feel like doing at the time. I imagine they'll include "dangerous" arthropods, too, if they feel like it.
