The root cause may be "some jackass" but that doesn't give the government carte blanche to do whatever it wants.

This bill proposes to declare "any constricting snake" to be a "dangerous exotic" and, among other things, ban new ownership of them all. That shows a lack of basic knowledge of herps on the part of it's author and sponsors, ie "the government". The proposed regulations are complete overkill and it is totally within reason and within their rights for hobbyists to speak up on behalf of themselves and to demand that the regulations be fair.

As you pointed out, it costs money to enforce laws and it is a part of the governments responsibility to not make proposals that waste taxpayer money. When they do, it's a good thing for people to be critical as long as it's done through proper channels and with respect for the rule of law, so to speak.
