3 Confidentiality.   Information collected by the bureau under this section is public except for:
A Volumes of forest products;
B Species of forest products;
C Types of forest products;

E Personally identifying information of forest product suppliers to roundwood processing operations and importers and exporters of forest products.

This amendment, which strikes and replaces the bill, makes a technical correction and specifies which information submitted by roundwood processing operations and importers and exporters of forest products annually to the Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry, Maine Forest Service is confidential. The bill proposes to make all information submitted by wood processing facilities to the Maine Forest Service confidential.
