EQC holds inaugural meeting
The Environmental Quality Council held its inaugural meeting today.
The council selected the Chairman, Senator John Brenden and the Vice Chairman, Representative Bill McChesney. As well as selecting the council's leadership, oil development in the Bakken and its effect on the water supply was a hot topic of discussion. The council wants to assess uses of water to ensure a stable supply in the future. On top of this, three study bills were discussed covering hunting and fishing licensing, operation and funding of Virginia City, Nevada City and Reeder's Alley in Helena, as well as federal land management. They will meet again tomorrow.
