That’s a direct quote from state Sen. Ken Jacobsen, D-Seattle.
I think he is alluding to Gov. Chris Gregoire‘s remark in her 2nd Inaugural Address about “putting sacred cows out to pasture.”
(No one is sure whether she was referring only to getting rid of some 700 boards and commissioner, or wants to go beyond that particular herd and do something more substantive.)
Jake’s is the best quote of the session, so far.
By the way, at last count, Jacobsen had sponsored 58 bills this session. His record last year was 99.
