hog house
 attrib.— «Hog House, a reference to gutting a bill and replacing the language, is a term often used in Pierre. About 90 years ago politicians altered a bill at the last second to obtain funding for a hog barn at SDSU, and the term stuck like pig muck to a boot.» —“Hog House Blog offers Denise Ross’ reports on the state” by Tom Lawrence Black Hills Pioneer (Spearfish, South Dakota) Apr. 30, 2007.
