legalizing gliders in mass
massachusetts residents are one step closer to being able to own sugar gliders smile
and certain reptiles, that are not currently allowed!!

mass state regulations 321cmr 901 pertaining to certain reptiles and sugar gliders in mass (not currently allowed in mass), has been revised and ok'd
now,

a public hearing is scedualed and will be held tomorrow :-)
if all goes well with the hearing, the new/revised regulations would then finally be signed off on by the governor.
UPDATE.......
THE HEARING WENT FANTASTIC.... THERE IS A 2 WEEK GRACE (WAITING)PERIOD AND THEN A FINAL DESISION WILL BE MADE. IT IS EXPECTED THAT THE BOARD WILL VOTE FAVORABLY .....( this info was directly from the mass dfw!!

THE FINAL STEP WILL BE THAT IT WILL BE PUBLISHED BY THE END OF NOVEMBER AND AT THAT POINT SUGAR GLIDERS WILL BE ALLOWED IN MASSACHUSETTS.... smile

this means that certain reptiles and sugar gliders could and most likely would be legalized in mass very soon smile (within a month from the hearing)

happy gliding mass. residents

Yes from what I heard the hearing was great as well and I did read about the two week grace period.

I was unaware that we had to wait till end of November for it to be signed. I thought a decision was going to be made quickly after the October grace period. But regardless that's great news! I live in MA so I have been waiting to hear something positive. I hope it passes! Well off to look at dept of wildlife's website !

WOOHOO!!!!WE DID IT!!!!!!!!!!

The final vote was today regarding 321 CMR 9.01 reg changes
Allowing mass residents to own certain reptiles AND SUGAR GLIDERS....

When I asked the mass DFW what the decision was I got this...

"The Board voted this afternoon to approve the agency's recommendations. Once the changes are published in the State Register, Sugar Gliders will be legal to keep as pets in MA."------- from the DFW

It's been a long journey and WE DID IT!!!!!
Thank you for all of your support

We jut have to wait now till they publish it , in the state register

YAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY
VERY SOON mass residents can legally own sugar gliders!!!!!!

I copied this off fb! Thank you to everyone for the good thoughts and kind words. And for all those who worked so hard to get this law changed! Been a LONG TIME COMING! Now, the next big fight...to keep PP from selling in the malls here...being Christmas is right around the corner! Printing out info to get into the stores and malls will be of utmost importance, so to try to get ahead of the mill breeders and try to help educate on these wonderful animals!

Congratulations!

When you find a way to keep them out of the malls let me know, they were here less than a month after I got them made legal in the city of Madison.

Are there any updates on this? Today I was told that it did not pass after all and the law will remain the same (that is, sugar gliders will remain illegal in MA). Can anyone verify this?

EDIT: I found that on the very last page of this document:

http://www.mass.gov/eea/agencies/dfg/dfw...ist-redline.pdf

It lists sugar gliders (in red) under "mammals that may be kept without a permit."

I poked around online today and found the woman that sponsored the amendment.

I called her office and spoke with her assistant. This amendment is still waiting a final vote and as of today it isn't on any agendas.

Still not legal.

I had to verify this for myself . I called about fifty people today and not one knew anything about this . BUT I was finally given the number to the gentleman that actually does the permits for exotics and wildlife in massachusetts and he did indeed verify that they are 100% legal now in massachusetts .. So if anyone else wants to verify the number to the division of fisheries and wildlife , the gentleman that I spoke to . The number 1-617-626-1575..... His name is bob oreeny ( don't know if I spelt the last name right lol )

Today is a happy day !!! We will now be moving back to our ancestral home if you will and I couldn't be more happy then I was today to find this out !!!!!!!!!!
