The smaller group of individuals have met with Senator Jeff Wilson and Ecology's Peter Lyon. While Senator Wilson has been very responsive to the requests from the citizens, the same can not be said for Mr. Lyon. In speaking with Senator Wilson, he indicated he may draw up legislation since the Department of Ecology is not responding to his questions. Senator Wilson will be attending the meeting.
