Capitol Report with Rep. Joel Kretz


Rep. Joel Kretz, R-Wauconda, talks with Capitol Report about the highlights of the 2016 session as it winds to a close.  One key bill that Kretz said he is proud of is his legislation that would give park rangers more authority in the event of a fire.  The lawmaker's district suffered an immense amount of damage during the hot season of 2015, when drought, high temperatures, and poorly tended forests led to catastrophic fires.  Legislators spent much of the 2016 session working on ways to ensure public safety and preservation of the forests in Washington.
