Dog & cat fur ban

From ANIMAL PEOPLE, December 2000:

WASHINGTON D.C.– – U . S .
President Bill Clinton in early November
signed into law an omnibus trade bill including
the key parts of bills introduced in late
1999 by Senator William Roth (RDelaware)
and Representative Jerry Kleczka
(D-Wisconsin) which would ban the import
of either dog or cat fur. Importers of items
made from dog or cat fur may now be fined
up to $10,000 per violation. The new law
also requires the U.S. Customs Service to
certify laboratories which are capable of distinguishing
dog and cat fur from other kinds
