    Have you actually read the bill?

    http://www.govtrack.us/congress/billtext.xpd?bill=h111-669

    Which of the following do you think we should have in this

    Many native species have been crowded out or can't compete
    with invasives. One that comes to mind is the European

    saw fit to introduce to America over 100 years ago. All of
    the millions of them in this country came from an initial
    group of 100 birds.
