I feel vaguely reminded of all the CPSIA nonsense when reading this post at Urban Chickens:
So, if the NAIS is passed, we’ll have to get tags/RFID chips for each of our urban chickens and report to the government if we take our chickens anywhere but our own backyards.
Wow. While the intent of the NAIS (disease tracking and “protection against bio-terrorism”), the implementation seems a bit intrusive/awkward if you ask me. (“No Fly List” anyone?)
It seems like the intent is good…but the Federal government once again fumbles in the implementation.
