Legislative Update a By Delegate Brent Boggs I could not begin this week's col- umn if I were not to give thanks for the safe rescue of Army Pfc. Jessica Lynch from her Iraqi captors. The brave Spe- cial Forces troops placed her safety be- fore their own in the daring rescue. Notwithstanding this heroic rescue, all our troops deserve our support, appreciation and prayers for a safe return. Each is a hero in nay book. This week, I want to recap a few of the Agricuhure and Natural Re- sources-related bills that passed both the House and Senate during the ieg- islati ve session, along with a few main components of each bill. HB 2094 - The bill makes it unlaw- ful to release and fish, water animal or other aquatic organism into public waters of the state without first ob- taining a stocking permit from the Div. of Natural Resources. The bill makes it clear that there are no restric- tions on the release of nati ve or estab- lished species of fish into privately owned ponds. HB 2240-The bill authorizes DNR to solicit voluntary donations to the Hunters Helping the Hungry program from persons purchasing or renewing hunting or fishing license electroni- cally. Moneys in the fund are used exclusively to support the program by payment of tees for the butchering of game carcasses and expenses for ac- quiring and distributing food to needy residents of West Virginia. HB 2285 - This bill requires all persons engaged in hunting or fishing through the washer and dryer during tohave, on their person, their hunting the year.

Bob Wise recently issued an executive order creating a Privacy Management Team to ensure that the ; personal information of all West Vir- ginians is protected. "It is of utmost importance that the privacy of the citizens of West Vir- ginia be protected," Wise said. "Citi- zens should not have to worry that their information is being sold to strangers." The Privacy Management Team : will conduct a comprehensive review of state procedures and regulations to ensure that each citizen has the right to access his personal information, which may have been collected by state agencies, and that the security and privacy of this same information be protected, whether it is stored in traditional files or in electronic forms. Following this review, the Privacy Management Team will develop and implement a state policy for the col- lection, maintenance and dissemina- tion of personal information. "West Virginians should be assured that their personal information, in- cluding social security numbers and medical records, can remain confi- dential," Wise said. The team will be chaired by the chairman of the Health Care Author- ity. Members oftbe team include the secretaries of the Departments of Administration, Military Affairs and Public Safety, Transportation, Tax and Revenue, Education and the Arts, Health and Human Resources, and Environmental Protection, and the commissioners of the Bureaus of Commerce, Employment Programs, and Senior Services, or their desig- aces.
