Inside Olympia — Lieutenant Governor Denny Heck

Last year Washington Lieutenant Governor Denny Heck released a statement saying he was deeply disappointed in the Legislature’s lack of action to address Washington’s lack of affordable housing. A year later, he’s calling the legislative session an unprecedented year for housing, both in terms of policy bills and budget appropriations. Host Austin Jenkins goes in-depth with Washington’s 17th lieutenant governor, Denny Heck — his thoughts on housing, in-person versus virtual legislative sessions, the across-the-aisle mutual respect shown this year in the State Senate, his 2023 plan to hold roundtables on civil discourse in politics, and more.
