Speaker Chopp and Governor Gregoire’s comments on the Senate GOP takeover

If reactions by House Speaker Frank Chopp and Gov. Chris Gregoire to Friday’s events are any guide, the Legislature will be in town far beyond the scheduled March 8 adjournment day.

"The Senate Republicans have exercised the worst abuse of power I have ever witnessed in the Legislature," Chopp, D-Seattle, said in a statement. "It says something about them that the minute they gained power, they abused it."

Gregoire, standing outside the speaker’s office, was furious as well.

"I am chagrined that they’re over there right now working on something I’ve never seen, the members have never seen — members on both parties have never seen, and they’re going to take a vote tonight?" she said.

"This is not how we do business in Washington state."

Actually this is exactly what the Republican Minority has been dealing with for 12 years.
