Capitol Report with Rep. Dent: Inslee’s reopening plan sets back rural recovery


Gov. Jay Inslee's latest plan to reopen gatherings and businesses from coronavirus restrictions concerns Rep. Tom Dent, R-Moses Lake, who talks about a letter he wrote to Gov. Jay Inslee explaining how the governor's plan penalizes rural communities with lower COVID metrics than urban areas in their region with high metrics. Dent also discusses his bill suspending child care provider license requirements during this difficult time and his opposition to a 18-cent gas tax increase proposed by Democrats.
