PostSubject: Meeting with Senator **** Black   Tue Apr 03, 2012 12:54 am

I had about an hour meeting with Senator **** Black today at his home office. If some of you may recall, he was one of our allies in the committee that helped kill the bill in the senate that would ban "dangerous animals". Anyway I had a meeting with him to discuss a potential sponsorship of a Virginia State Reptile.

Anyway, we had a great talk, mostly about field herpin. Sen. Black used to work with Bill Haast and used to run the Reptile World Serpentarium in Fl. In chatting with him, he did mention to me that we had done an awesome job lobbying to kill the bills.

My response to him was: well if you think we were organized then, you just wait until these bill come back up next year. Needless to say...he's a herp ally. Smile cheers cheers cheers

Nice job staying involved! I've been making calls and writing letters. Great news, especially considering the state/national political environment lately looks ever more focused on diminishing our personal rights....

my primary focus was to discuss him sponsoring an official state reptile, but...of course HSUS came up. Smile He's squarely on our side and is an ally. We had a great talk. Ironically, it's probably about the only thing we agree on....lol
