    The Senate Judiciary Committee is scheduled to review the legislation on Thursday.

    The bill is sponsored by Republican Sen. Doug Whitsett of Klamath Falls. It stems from a dispute between the Medford Mail Tribune and the Jackson County Sheriff after the newspaper filed a public records request for the database of people who have applied to carry concealed weapons.

    The state Court of Appeals has ruled that the database is a public record subject to disclosure.
