WASHINGTON, Feb. 21 (LID) – A group of Senate Republicans say they are taking aim at the “broad overcriminalization” of a federal law that makes it a crime to import into the United States illegally obtained plants or wildlife.
U.S. Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is seeking to make violations of the Lacey Act (16 U.S.C. §§ 3371–3378) civil offenses punishable by fines rather than criminal prosecution.
