HB 5394 restricting the continued sale of ivory and rhino horn in Connecticut

The illegal wildlife trade is a multi-billion dollar business and the fourth most lucrative transnational crime after drugs, weapons and human trafficking. The DOJ, FBI and CIA recognize the seriousness of wildlife trafficking and that the United States is a source, transit and destination country. While the federal government has banned most international imports and exports of elephant ivory, as well as interstate trade, ivory continues to be sold within 41 U.S. states. Connecticut is one of them. In January 2019, the Connecticut House Environmental Committee introduced HB 5394, an act to prohibit the trade of ivory and rhinoceros horn if it was taken from the wild after February 26, 1976. The bill was co-sponsored by Rep. Mitch Bolinsky of the 106th District.
