   board  of  a  county or governing body of a municipality from entering      
   into or negotiating a host agreement with a developer  of  a  proposed

   rendered a local siting decision  concerning  the  proposed  facility.      
   Effective immediately.

   requirement that any negotiations toward and terms of a host agreement      
   be disclosed in the record of local siting proceedings.
