S. 2577: A bill to amend the Migratory Bird Treaty Act to clarify the treatment of authentic Alaska Native articles of handicraft containing nonedible migratory bird parts, and for other purposes. (IMHO - NO! NO! NO!)

https://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/117/s2577?utm_campaign=govtrack_email_update&utm_source=govtrack/email_update&utm_medium=email

Text of the proposed additional language that has been introduced during the past 5 Congresses without a vote (emphasis added in red, below):

Section 2 of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act (16 U.S.C. 703) is amended by adding at the end the following:
(c)

Clarification for authentic Alaska Native articles of handicraft
(1)

Definitions

In this subsection:
(A)

Alaska Native

The term Alaska Native means a member of any Indian tribe (as defined in section 4 of the Indian Self-Determination and Education Assistance Act (25 U.S.C. 5304)) that is based in the State of Alaska.
(B)

Authentic Alaska Native article of handicraft
(i)

In general

The term authentic Alaska Native article of handicraft means any item that is—
(I)

composed, wholly or in a significant respect, of natural materials; and
(II)

produced, decorated, or fashioned by hand in significant part—
(aa)

by an Alaska Native;
(bb)

in the exercise of traditional Alaska Native handicrafts; and
(cc)

without the use of any mass copying device.
(ii)

Inclusions

The term authentic Alaska Native article of handicraft includes—
(I)

any weaving, carving, stitching, sewing, lacing, beading, drawing, or painting that meets the criteria described in clause (i); and
(II)

any item, including clothing, described in subclause (I) that combines the techniques described in that subclause.
(2)

Clarification for certain authentic Alaska Native articles of handicraft

Subject to paragraph (3) and notwithstanding any other provision of this Act, nothing in this Act prohibits the possession, offering for sale, sale, offering to barter, barter, offering to purchase, purchase, delivery for shipment, shipment, causing to be shipped or delivered for transportation, transport, causing to be transported, carrying, causing to be carried, or receiving for shipment, transportation, or carriage of any authentic Alaska Native article of handicraft on the basis that the authentic Alaska Native article of handicraft contains a nonedible migratory bird part.
(3)

Limitation

This subsection does not apply to an authentic Alaska Native article of handicraft containing a part of a migratory bird that was taken in a wasteful manner.
Only within the moment of time represented by the present century has one species -- man -- acquired significant power to alter the nature of the world.
