Lager on DNR

Lager heads up the Senate's Committee looking into the delayed report of E-Coli bacteria found at lake of the Ozarks. DNR director Mark Templeton will get his job back after being suspended; a subordinate of his will not. Senator Lager says Templeton's unpaid leave for 2 weeks was not the right punishment. Lager has said publicly the Senate's attempts to find out why the E-Coli report was delayed for almost a month have been met with an "Organized Cover-up" to get that information.
