Rep. Tom Dent appointed to bipartisan Interim Task Force on Washington Waters

Rep. Tom Dent, R-Moses Lake, has been appointed to the Interim Task Force on Washington Waters by House Republican Leader Dan Kristiansen. Dent, who also serves as assistant ranking member on the House Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee, joins four other House Republicans appointed by Kristiansen.

The Interim Task Force on Washington Waters was created through the capital budget, and is made up of five Democratic members and five Republican members. The task force will work through the interim, and will be looking at three areas: storm water, flood control and water supply infrastructure in the state.

“One of my top priorities is working to help manage and preserve our water, which is vital to our state's economic growth,” said Dent. “I look forward to collaborating with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to develop ideas and solutions that will help preserve, store and supply our most vital natural resource.”

The task force must report its findings and recommendations to the appropriate legislative committee by Nov. 15, 2015.
