Child’s Letter Prompted WA State Bigfoot Bill

Anne Rivers of the 18th District in Washington State explains that a letter from a young constituent was the origin of Senate Bill 5816, which would make Sasquatch Washington’s Official Cryptid, like the Square Dance is the Official Dance of WA State.

“For those who will say this is silly, let me point out that the Senate has already approved an education-funding plan, and work on the new state budgets is moving along as quickly as it can,” she said. “A bill to add Bigfoot to the list of state symbols is one of the simplest pieces of legislation we could pass this year or any year. Additionally, I can’t think of a better way for children to learn about the process of governing than to have them work on something of interest to them.”
