Eye On Olympia

Get the hook…

Debate in the state House of Representatives stretched late into the night Monday, with the final gavel falling just before 11 p.m.
Among the lowlights: debate on ESHB 1754 , which exempts small poultry farmers from some of the more-stringent slaughter regulations.
Rep. Sam Hunt, D-Olympia, couldn’t resist.
“I don’t want to crow about this bill, but it will egg on the local economy,” he told lawmakers. He went on about how proponents cracked open hardboiled opposition, and what an eggcellent bill it was.
“This is a good bill, and that’s no yolk,” he concluded, to a chorus of groans.
