This amendment clarifies that the exception to the definition of "public record" proposed in the bill is limited to records provided by a railroad company that describe hazardous materials that are transported by the railroad company, the routes of the hazardous materials shipments and the frequency of the hazardous materials operations on those routes when those records are in the possession of state or local emergency management entities or law enforcement agencies, fire departments or other first responders.
