THE FOSSIL BILL
The AAPS has advised us that the so-called
"Paleontological Resources Preservation Act" (HR2974 and S2727) which
sought to regulate (read: "ban") fossil collecting and commerce in
the United States "died at the end of the congressional session."
This is great news for fossil collectors, but the bill could be reintroduced,
so we must be vigilant. The AAPS will continue
to monitor the situation, and they can use your support!
We invite you to join the Paleolist
our fun, enlightening, and completely free email-based discussion list
that covers any and all topics related to fossils and fossil collecting. We
have hundreds of subscribers from all over the world, and with all levels of
expertise. New members are very welcome! Please read about the
fossil mailing list, and we hope you will join us
