SB477 passed out of the WV House Judiciary Committee on 3/7/12. Yesterday it received it's first reading on the House floor. Today it will receive it's second reading on the House floor. Itcould be voted on tomorrow 3/10/12. If it does not pass by Saturday at midnight it will be DEAD!

SB477 is poorly written and vague. It could potential ban all non-native reptiles in WV. It has been rushed through the legislative process avoiding stakeholder input. Don’t let thishappen!



NOW IS THE TIME FOR ACTION!!!



Go to Charleston Statehouse:

For those of you following this you know that USARK has been leading a fight in the trenches in Charleston for several weeks, but it is mandatory that more West Virginians get proactive and go toCharleston today and tomorrow. We need boots on the ground right now! Go TODAY!!! Joe Perdue , Greg Stephens and Ron Lanham have lead the fight on the ground so far. They need help. Take off work andgo today! Joe Perdue has spent more time in Charleston fighting SB477 than anyone else. Contact Joe for instructions at joseph.perdue3@gmail.com on how to make the most of your visit toCharleston.



Call In Campaign:

Everyone needs to call their Delegates whether they are going to Charleston or not.



Sample Script: (be polite)

I am a WV resident and I want to register my opposition to SB477. The bill is vague, over reaching and addresses a problem that does not exist. It has been rushed through the legislature with zerostakeholder input. It will hurt me and my family. WV DNR does not have the time, resources nor expertise to promulgate rules, nor enforce such a broad law. Please remove all reptiles and vote NO onSB477. Thank you.



Call and email the WV Speaker of the House Thompson first:

Business Phone: (304) 522-8699
