Thank you. That is good news. Undecided is better than jumping on the ban(d) wagon.

That's excellent news, Michael! I'm so glad to hear it. I'll see if I can make some calls tomorrow.

Nobody should give up yet. You really need to keep actively fighting. If you give up, we all lose. If you keep fighting, you may still lose but you get the exotic animal community's voice heard.

I've been kind of faltering in my efforts over here, I just got done with Midterms.
But I have a lot of free time this weekend, and I want to know what's the best thing you think I can do right now. I'm thinking phone calls, but I really would like a good idea of what to say and what I can expect. Who am I going to be talking to, what am I gonna say?
I'm really nervous about making phone calls, but I would love to live in Ohio some day if this legislation doesn't get pushed through. :/

Astargirl I just noticed you are in Carrollton. We live in Uhrichsville, and my mom lives in Sherrodsville. We're not too far away.

My attitude is not one of giving up but I can see reality I dont have alot of faith in people in office. Hopefully, they will actually debate this bill and not just say a line and sign like so many other bills that become law.

Just spoke with Senator Cafaros office and it was reported to me that she is leaning towards supporting the bill. Jump on her flood her email and office with calls. Let her know how we have enough dead animals in Ohio and that we are not going to stand by and let this happen. Be nice and have hard facts. Tell them you have given up enough of your rights over the years and your not about to give this one up.

I got the day off from work. Will be a 3 hour drive there and 3 back, so a 6 hour round trip, but I will be there. Even after just getting 4 hours of sleep!!
I spoke with Senator Cafaro's office yesterday and I learned that she did have some concerns with the bill, especially the ridiculous permit fees. (I will have to pay $1,000 per year just for the permit).

OAAO
300 Stichter Rd.
Pleasant Hill, OH 45359
Ph: (937) 676-2058
Email: oaao@windstream.net
On the web: www.oaao.us
URGENT !!!
Your attendance is needed at the next hearing of Ohio Senate Bill 310. This bill if
passed will ban a long list of exotic and native mammals and reptiles and will allow
Ohio’s Director of Agriculture to add even more animals to the list.
We need you to come to the next hearing which is tentatively scheduled for the
morning of Tuesday, April 17, 2012. Bring others with you; we need to fill the
hearing room. At the last hearing on March 27, over 200 animal owners showed up.
We need to do it again and let the Senate committee know that the animal owners of
Ohio oppose this legislation that’s being pushed on us by Jack Hanna, the Columbus
Zoo, Governor Kasich, and the Humane Society of the U.S.
Address where the hearing will be held:
Ohio Statehouse
78 S. High St.
Columbus, OH 43215
Meet in the Rotunda at 10:00 a.m. and you will be shown to the hearing room.
Even if you are not an Ohio resident, if you do business in Ohio, you need to be at the
hearing.
Important: Email oaao@windstream.net or call (937) 676-2058 on or after Friday,
April 13 to confirm that the hearing is still scheduled for that day. The Senate
committee Chairman could change the date, time, or even cancel the hearing, so it’s
very important that you call or email us before driving to Columbus.

Oh I hope this all gets sorted out in 'our' favour so my partner can start at pilot school and I can move!

As it is I have had to sign a contract to work in Cambridgeshire in the UK for 2 years (got bored of London) but my uncle who is a Solicitor over here says it has so many holes I can worm my way out of it as soon as I want to leave but I am not going anywhere without my fur kids.
