Question Ban from Hawaii?

I was at my LFS looking at yellow tangs and the guy there told me that if I want one, I should buy one soon because there is a ban coming down on the export of yellow tangs from Hawaii?

I thought the bills did NOT get passed and there was no worry until next year...?

Anybody know anything about this? Is he just trying to sell me a fish??
