Re: [APD] HR 669

I believe Bryan Nielsen wrote this email section below:
On quick glance I don't see where this would outright ban tropical
fish and other pets?  What I took from it is that it would provide
risk assessment to determine if a species has potential to cause harm
and based on that would ban some species.

And just who is going to pay for that 'risk assessment'?
No doubt the importers.
I bet a long queue will develop...

Don't they do something like this already with aquatic plants in the USA?

You mean like dogs and cats? ;-)
