Olympia boring us with stupidity or arrogance.

This notice was sent out January 28 at 12:01 AM. The notice was for events later that same day. Yep. Plenty of time to drop everything and get over to Olympia and see the Democreep circus. Nice of them to follow I960 requirements in such reluctant fashion.

"HB 2966, titled "AN ACT Relating to establishing a state meat inspection program," has been introduced in the House of Representatives and is scheduled for a public hearing by the House Committee on Agriculture & Natural Resources.

"Date and Time: 01/28/2010 8:00AM (Subject to change by the Legislature.)
Location: John L. O'Brien Building, House Hearing Rm B, Olympia, WA"

The Office of Financial Management projects this bill to increase cost to the taxpayers or affected feepayers by only $3,750 over the next ten years.

But it sets up a whole new agency, Washington State Meat Inspectors. Isn't the United States Department of Agriculture's meat inspection program enough that we have to have another layer of bureaucrats?

In the same I960 notice, they announced SB 6648, titled "AN ACT Relating to protecting and assisting consumers and homeowners from unfair lending practices and during foreclosure proceedings," has been introduced in the Senate and is scheduled for a public hearing by the Senate Committee on Labor, Commerce & Consumer Protection.

Date and Time: 01/28/2010 3:30PM (Subject to change by the Legislature.)
Location: J.A. Cherberg Building, Senate Hearing Rm 4, Olympia, WA

The added cost to house purchasers? A mere $6,370,000 per year.

They're making a making a mess.

Effing the ineffable - Washington State elections sometimes have been rigged.
