Everyone is science based as long as they get to pick what science to follow.

And there are not as many absolutes in science as people want to believe.

From Senator Salomon,

Quote
Dear Mr. Koenig-

Thank you for your email regarding the recent appointments to the Washington Fish and Wildlife Commission.  I do not anticipate a quick confirmation on these nominees.

 

As Vice-Chair of the Senate Agriculture, Water, Natural Resources and Parks Committee, I work closely with the Chair of the Committee, Senator Kevin Van De Wege. We meet regularly with the Governor and his staff on matters such as this and were surprised at the announcement of these nominees without any previous discussion.  As you may be aware, I have previously expressed my concerns with actions taken by the Fish and Wildlife Commission, especially around the expansion of salmon and steelhead gillnetting. Combined with dissatisfaction at the lack of responsiveness of the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, I see an even greater need for communication and transparency, which I find lacking in this appointment process.

I will be seeking further information prior to considering any vote to confirm new commissioners to the Fish and Wildlife Commission.

Sincerely,

This seems to be a pretty damning indictment of Inslee's process (SHOCKER) that the Vice Chair of the committee responsible for confirming these appointments was not notified at all of these 2 appointments.

I think jay the sleez just thought he could slip it past everyone and make it hard to NOT do it for those who may otherwise oppose it.  Hes so used to doing what he wants with out question.
