On our second call, Senator James Isgar, D-Dist. 6, joined us to discuss the budget, a transportation bill, SB158, SB229, and water bills.
Senator Isgar discussed SB158 in detail stating, "We had wantedbeen wanting to address confidentiality as far as wildlife issues whenever somebody comes in to look at habitat or species on private lands. We're concerned on where that information could end up." He continued by saying, "It's really important that we are addressing that confidentiality."
