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.

These 2 have been seated and not confirmed yet. Im really curious to hear about some of their votes. I believe they are voting on the Hound pursuit season today. To me how Koontz votes will be interesting. He claims to be a hunting supporter but he is not one nor does it appear that he is involved  in a meaningful way with sportsmen... Ive heard rumors of him complaining about being labeled an Anti Hunter...
In archery we have something like the way of the superior man. When the archer misses the center of the target, he turns round and seeks for the cause of his failure in himself.

He voted against adoption of the rule.

Hmm guess him crying about supporting sportsmen and nit being an anti hunter has revealed where he stands!

Shocked!  These two appointees are not friends of the hunting community.  They could care less if we get less opportunity.  That is their agenda.

Have these two been officially approved by the Senate yet? Do we know what date that might happen?

In other words, is there still time to send out some emails and if so, what is the deadline?

They have been seated but not yet confirmed... Ive heard some rumblings that  another push to keep the from being confirmed may take place.

F&W Commissioners rarely get a confirmation hearing. They can serve on an interim basis until confirmed so without a hearing they are in for good. There would have to be a massive outcry for a hearing to get one.
Do you think a Governors own party is going to go out of their way to make Insley look bad? It ain't happening.
FYI, Van DeWege sits more on the animal rights side of the aisle so nothing good for us is going through him.
