n.— «If a marine reserves legislative sausage comes out of the other end of the February session grinder, it won’t look anything like the initial concept. “It’s going to be almost a gut-and-stuff,” Krieger said about what’s likely to emerge. Gut-and-stuff is a term for a bill that has had no many redactions and amendments that it is unrecognizable from the original proposal.» —“Marine reserves idea moves on to Legislature” by Henry Miller Statesman Journal (Salem, Oregon) Jan. 15, 2008.
