‘Wildfire Information’ page updated

The “Wildfire Information” page has a couple of minor updates.

First off, the phone numbers for reporting wildfires are now prominently displayed.

Also, the description of the Kalispell Interagency Dispatch Center has been updated to include information on accessing the incident logs — very handy when you want to know why there are trucks and helicopters running around the neighborhood.

‘Bill Tracker’ lists good and bad Montana environmental bills

The Montana Environmental Information Center (MEIC) maintains a “Bill Tracker” on their web site. It lists all the environmental bills, both good and bad, being considered by the Montana legislature. Here’s what they have to say about it: “Use MEIC’s Legislative Bill Tracker tool to stay current with the most recent legislative happenings. You can see where a bill is in the process, read facts about different legislative proposals, and contact legislators about specific pieces of legislation.”

MEIC updates their Bill Tracker every day.

If you are trying to keep an eye on Montana’s legislative shenanigans, visiting the Bill Tracker page should be part of your daily routine. It is so useful, in fact, that we’ve added it to our “Related Links” sidebar. Look for “Bill Tracker Tool (MEIC).”
