    Hi John,

    It was great to chat with you.

    Attached are the Conditional Vetoes for the two bills. He made some changes but unfortunately they are still bad.

    Take care,

    Re: Governor Christie Vetoes Bills In Our Favor!

    It is time to start throwing out these career politicians in this state who are only there to push their personal agenda's. Some of us in N.J. came very close to loosing our business's due to this. Thankfully it is gone for now. But you know it will rear its ugly head again. Good job to the people of the Conservation Force, and everyone else involved. Thank You John for keeping us posted on this.

    I just ran across this article. More good news.

    The experience will celebrate the vital contributions of sportsmen and women to wildlife conservation and engages leading conservation partners to showcase important success stories and ongoing efforts.

    This is going to hurt and put some taxidermist out of business in N.J. Any animal on the threatened or endangered list is prohibited from N.J. import, even the pronghorn antelope.

    NJ already has the most vague form of wildlife laws known to the country. For example, under Title 23:2A-6, any commercial furrier in the Garden State would be in full violation of this law, when processing, manufacturing, marketing and selling a simple Bobcat (lynxus rufus) skin coat. However, under this same law, taxidermists may not sell a bobcat rug, raw or tanned pelt or finished mount because the animal is actually listed as an endangered specie in NJ. Additionally, as taxidermists, we cannot legally mount, possess or transport the Mountain Zebra, Bontebok, Grizzly Bear, Woodland Caribou, and a host of other exotic and or foreign species that normally are acquired through out of state commercial game ranching such as black buck antelope, nilgai etc. In fact, even with a current Federal Migratory Bird Permit, NJ taxidermists CANNOT by state law possess, process and or transport any protected birds species regardless of who holds the state required salvage permits.

    The worst news is that the NJ, NY, CT, PA or any North East Taxidermists have not a single friend in Trenton, the capital of NJ to stand up for our industry. There is no doubt whatsoever why NJ is known as "The Soprano State". With all due respect and without prejudice, if corporate pharmaceuticals, Jewish owned furrier businesses, Union bosses, medical insurance agencies and double dipping municipal employees, doctors and politicians, were controlled as mindlessly as NJ taxidermists, S-977 / S-978 would have never seen the light of day in the NJ Assembly. Career politicians know all too well that it's an easy coup, an effortless strike and a major smoke screen to cover up every other facet of their unscrupulous political careers. Meanwhile, NJ's cities boast the highest property taxes and crime rates in the country! Undocumented aliens are draining the financial resources of NJ, while they're given as many rights and privileges of which successful law abiding Americanized immigrants rightfully enjoy. They are all taught one major lesson by the same insulated law makers who pushed for S-978 and S-977...vote early and vote often! Make no mistake, New Jersey has the best politicians that money can buy. Now then, let's see how many NJ Fur Salons have their complete inventory of bobcat and lynx pelts confiscated any time soon.

    23:2A-6. Taking, possession, transportation, sale of endangered species or regulated nongame species

    Except as otherwise provided in this act or regulations adopted thereunder, no person shall take, possess, transport, export, process, sell or offer for sale, or ship, and no common or contract carrier shall knowingly transport or receive for shipment any species or subspecies of wildlife appearing on the following lists: (1) the list of wildlife determined to be endangered by the commissioner pursuant to this act; (2) the list of nongame species regulated pursuant to this act; and (3) any Federal list of endangered species. Any species or subspecies of wildlife appearing on any of the foregoing lists which enters the State from another state or from a point outside the territorial limits of the United States and which is transported across the State destined for a point beyond the State may be so entered and transported without restriction in accordance with the terms of any Federal permit or permit issued under the laws or regulations of another state.

    L.1973, c. 309, § 6, eff. Dec. 14, 1973. Amended by L.1981, c. 281, § 4, eff. Sept. 10, 1981.
