WMEACtion ALERT! Asian Carp Prevention and Control Act – S.1421

S.1421 – The Asian Carp Prevention and Control act, introduced by Michigan Senator Carl Levin has already unanimously passed the Senate and is on the floor TODAY in the House for a vote. This bill would make it a federal crime to import or ship bighead carp (a type of Asian carp), unless the importer has obtained permission from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) to import the fish for scientific, medical, educational, or zoological reasons. The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) estimates that implementing S. 1421 would have no significant cost to the federal government, and does not create any regulatory burdens or unfunded mandates.
