Legislation that would require DNREC to get the consent of property owners before collecting natural resource data on private property before doing so has been laid on the table and awaits further action. Senate Bill 229 is sponsored by Senator Ernie Lopez. For years DNREC has collected this data without property owners consent. This measure would require written consent from a property owner before DNREC officials physically enter onto private property to collect Natural Resource Data.
