News Yelling at Frank Chopp. Goldy’s Turn.

If he doesn’t schedule a vote to pass the bill out of Rules by the end of the day today, it’s dead.
KOMO picked up on the story this week.
But never mind me or KOMO.
Now Goldy is in on it
There’s no kinda, sorta over at HorsesAss. Take it away, Mr. Goldstein:
… there’s only one “stakeholder” Chopp seems to be concerned with, and that is the BIAW. Now, I don’t know if Chopp is simply afraid of the BIAW, or if he’s worked out some kind of a deal with them in which he’s promised not to pass the bill, but that’s the only reasonable explanation for Chopp’s intransigence on a bill that merely gives buyers of single family homes the same rights condo owners have enjoyed since 1990. I can sue my doctor… I can sue my lawyer… I can sue my auto mechanic or even my barber… but I can’t sue a contractor for refusing to fix shoddy materials or workmanship in a brand new house. What’s up with that? …
[W]hen he’s so clearly caving to the BIAW on such an uncontroversial scrap of necessary consumer protection, one has to wonder if Chopp’s focus on building a majority is getting in the way of his willingness to use it?
