Chicago Tribune Mentions Georgetown Economic Services Report Regarding Python Ban
January 17, 2012

Kelley Drye & Warren LLP and Georgetown Economic Services were mentioned in the Chicago Tribune article, "Burmese Python Import Banned, Other Snakes Still Allowed." The article discusses the recent ban on the import of Burmese pythons, yellow anaconda, and northern and southern African pythons. The article notes that the U.S. Association of Reptile Keepers hired Kelley Drye as its Washington lobbyist, and the law firm's consulting subsidiary, Georgetown Economic Services, produced a report finding that the ban on all nine snakes would cost the industry more than $103 million and eliminate thousands of jobs.
