Rep. Wilcox: An overview of the Hirst Decision

Rep. J.T. Wilcox, R-Yelm, provides an overview of the Washington State Supreme Court's Hirst decision. In the decision, the Supreme Court told counties that before they issued permits to landowners to drill wells, they would have to make sure there was sufficient water so as to not reduce the amount of water that makes it into rivers, streams, and locations where there might be fish.
