(Olympia, WA)  --  A bill that could lead to more controlled burns to reduce the severity of wildfires in Washington is awaiting action in a Senate committee.  Under the measure, air-quality rules that apply to outdoor burning would be relaxed to allow controlled burns in central and eastern Washington.  The bill is being considered following the worst wildfire season in Washington's history.  The measure was unanimously approved in the House and has received a hearing by the Senate Natural Resources and Parks Committee.
