★ WHAT IS THIS BILL? ★
The America COMPETES Act (HR4521) replaced an earlier version and now has lots of extra sections, including these Lacey Act Amendments. HR4521 passed in the House. It will now be reconciled with (make two bills into one) the Senate version which is the U.S. Innovation and Competition Act (S1260). The bills will be compared by a committee and then Congress will present a bill with language from both of these bills. S1260 does NOT contain this bad Lacey Act section.
★ WHAT IT DOES ★
1. It reverses USARK’s lawsuit victory. That means species listed as injurious cannot be transported across state lines. (i.e. big snakes including reticulated/Burmese pythons, anacondas, 201 species of salamanders)
2. Creates a “white list” of species that can be imported. This means that any animal (reptile, amphibian, fish, bird, mammal) that is not on the white list is by default treated as invasive and is banned from importation.
3. Gives FWS a new “emergency designation.” FWS can list a species as injurious and it becomes banned from interstate movement and importation overnight. This means no due process, public input, hearings, advanced notice, etc.
4. FWS can ban importation if a species has not been imported in “minimal quantities.” Minimal quantities will be defined later so we do not know the threshold.
NOTE THAT USARK is not opposing the COMPETES Act. We are opposing the section with these Lacey Act amendments. We do not want that section included in the reconciled bill that emerges from committee. COMPETES is a 3,000-page bill and this is just one small section.
