The stuff lawmakers say

This session — now drawing to a close — we started a new feature we called “They Said It,” primarily because we couldn’t call it “$&*^ Lawmakers Say.” It’s been a hit

This year’s “You Golden-Tongued Devil” award will have to go to Rep. Steve Holland of Plantersville. But Ways and Means Chairman Jeff Smith was a close runner up

Here’s a recap — Greatest Hits, Vol. I — of quotes from the 2015 legislative session:

•“As they would say in Russia: Toughsky-toughsky, boing, boing, boing.” — Rep. Steve Holland, on an insurance bill

•“I’m not going to pee on your leg and tell you it’s raining. It’s urine that’s going on your leg.” — Ways and Means Chairman Jeff Smith
