The “Fur Products Prohibition Act of 2022” failed to move through the D.C. 2022 legislative process and is considered defeated.
As previously reported, Bill 24-0758 outlawed the sale of fur products throughout D.C. with exemptions for taxidermy and leather. This ban would have left trappers and others who rely on fur products as a business with no way to sustain their activities. The impacts would have been felt far and wide, including on all-fur products and any items that use fur in production, such as fishing lures, boots, gloves or other clothing, jewelry and toys.
