They Must Love Lacey in DC

They can't seem to leave the Lacey Act alone. This was introduced February 24:

S. 462 Boxer: A bill to amend the Lacey Act Amendments of 1981 to prohibit the importation, exportation, transportation, and sale, receipt, acquisition, or purchase in interstate or foreign commerce, of any live animal of any prohibited wildlife species, and for other purposes.

So far, the text is not up on Thomas.

Don't get me wrong. I am a big fan of prohibiting the illegal trade in animals. I'm OK with the bill (at least with the title). It just seems like this is not a good time to be piling on the poor Lacey Act.
