Oregon House OKs ban the sale of automatic dishwasher soap


The Oregonian--

Wednesday, the Legislature gave final approval to a bill similar to Washington state's bill to cut down algae promoting phosphorus after a debate that featured references to desperate housewives, detergent scofflaws and Oregon's runaway geese population.

Senate Bill 631 bans the sale of residential dishwasher soaps with more than 0.5% phosphorus content by July 1, 2010 had already passed the Senate, cleared the House by a vote of 47-13.

Rep. Matt Wingard, R-Wilsonville, held up a news story that said people in Spokane, which adopted earlier restrictions on soap, now drive to Idaho to get dish detergent "because the detergent that is available in their state is no longer cleaning their dishes."

Twelve other states have also adopted similar restrictions.

Responding to a comment by Rep. Bill Garrard, R-Klamath Falls being bombarded by numerous e-mails from unhappy housewives.Rep. Sara Gelser, D-Corvallis, noted that men also do dishes.

Rep. Mike Schaufler, D-Happy Valley, referring to an earlier bill bemoaning the state's overpopulation of geese, quipped: "I say we get the housewives and househusbands out of the kitchen and start shooting some geese."

sigh
well, let's not make the same mistake that we did after Kulongoski changed over the counter drugs to prescription drugs and now the medication is either too expensive or no longer available in Oregon. In other words, it's time to stock up on automatic dishwashing soap.
So unless they're going to put a quota on how many boxes somebody can buy, I guess I'll go out and buy a crate of my favorite soap before it's too late.

Gads, what morons!

Oh yeah, and what about the states 12.0% unemployment? Oh, that's not important right now.

Many households in Oregon do not use sewer systems and waste does not enter waterways. Many Oregonians use septic tanks, including homes near Eugene and Springfield. How do I know this? Because I use a septic tank and I live about 2 blocks from the Springfield city limits. The report says Washington passed a law like this and I often read stories about the Oregon Legislature following something done in California or Washington. What a great example to follow! How much is the state of California in debt? I would suggest that if we see that if California is doing something that we are considering, we should do the opposite. How many times have I told my kids "be careful of who you run around with. They could get you into trouble too!"
