Stephanie Tidwell, Friends of the Eel River Executive Director, and Scott Greacen, Friends of the Eel River Conservation Director, discuss new and proposed state legislation and how it may effect the Eel River.

AB 1270 requires annual inspections of high hazard dams - those were loss of life is likely in the event of dam failure, and even makes some information from inspections part of the public record.

Stephanie and Scott also discuss Friends of the Eel River's cautious optimism for Mike McGuire's proposed Great Redwood Trail Act, SB 1029.
