Eye On Olympia

Walla Walla flexes it’s political muscle…

We pause from statehouse brow-knitting over the worsening health care mess, big budget woes, controversial election reforms and what to do about taxes to bring you House Bill 1964 , a modest proposal that states simply that “The Walla Walla sweet onion is designated as the official vegetable of the state of Washington.”

If it passes, the famous Walla Walla sweets will join the proud ranks of the the state fish (steelhead), state gem (petrified wood), state dance (squaredancing) and state insect (green darner dragonfly).

Troublingly, Washington remains without an official state marine mammal. But House Bill 1759 would repair that oversight with the orca whale.
