The department may confer with or hold joint meetings and hearings with any government agency in connection with any matter arising under this chapter, or relating to the sound development of aviation, and the department may avail itself of the cooperation, services, records, and facilities of any government agency, as fully as is practicable, in the administration and enforcement of such sections. It shall reciprocate by furnishing to any such regional airport authority or agency its cooperation, services, records, and facilities, as fully as is practicable and in the best interests of the public.
