    .. HB 190 passed the house by an overwhelming majority vote: 95 - 5. This is the bill that prevents capricious and arbitrary fencing off stream access; particularly at bridge crossings. Read about it at the Bozeman Daily Chronicle. Note that the Bozeman contingent opposes the bill.
    .. The Montana Kaimin has picked up the story about SB 15 and notes that history and science play dispirit roles in the walleye's bid to be named a native fish, (LINK.)
    .. This story was cited by Protect Your Waters as: "Walleye vs. Trout Playing Out in Montana Legislature."
    .. We'll have more to say as the legislative session progresses. Let's hope that there are sage and cogent minds in the conversations as the battles heat up.
