Wild Parrot Legislation for NY: Update

From Barry Schwartz, Geologist at the NYC Bureau of Environmental & Geotechnical Services:

“According to the office of NYC Councilman Tony Avella, the Resolution regarding protecting Quaker parrots in NYC is due to be introduced at the next council meeting on March 24, 2009. I have draft copy of the finalized resolution–the officially introduced resolution, barring any problems, will be made publicly available on the NYC Council’s website some time after March 25th. After introduction, it will more than likely be sent to Committee (probably Environmental) for further consideration.

At that point, there will probably be a period allotted for public hearing/comments, and we will need all the support possible to get this resolution then passed.

I’ve been sheparding this with Council member Avella since last year, and it is really great to see this idea turn into a proposed legislation. I am still waiting to hear back from NY State Sen. Addabbo’s office on the more detailed proposed legislation for the State Legislature to consider (changing the designation of Quakers from unprotected to protected, and changing the NYS General Business Laws and the Agriculture & Markets Laws regarding the sale of birds in NY State).”

    As the name connotes, this is free of any cost. Some
    lenders have hidden charges which may result in repayments too expensive and ensures rejection also.
    You are just required to do is to select a suitable deal.
    However, if it is healthy then no matter that money lending group would reject your form.
