PRATT ­– Keeping track of the hundreds of legislative bills and figuring out which ones will impact our natural resources and outdoor recreation can be confusing and difficult. To help those with an interest, the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism (KDWPT) will provide regular updates on its website, www.ksoutdoors.com, featuring summaries of any natural resource- and outdoor recreation-related bills.
