Python Bill Takes Major Step to Becoming Law

SB318 by Sen. Eleanor Sobel (D-Hollywood) unanimously passed the Senate on third reading this afternoon, and will now move to the House where it is paired with legislation by Rep. Trudi Williams (R-Ft. Myers). This legislation would prohibit ownership and breeding of pythons, nile monitors, and several other large constrictors. Not only will it hopefully slow the introduction of additional Burmese pythons into South Florida’s wild lands, but it will prevent other large constrictors from becoming established like pythons in places like the Everglades.
