This bill generally exempts nonnative amphibians and nonnative reptiles from the law that requires a permit for the possession of wildlife in captivity and the importation of wildlife from outside of the State but provides a list of nonnative amphibian and nonnative reptile species that are still subject to the permitting requirement. It also specifies that all native amphibians and native reptiles are subject to the permitting requirement.
