hog housing
 attrib.— «That wasn’t what Sen. Joel Heitkamp, D-Hankinson, prime sponsor of the bill, originally wrote when it was introduced. He proposed converting the WSI board to an advisory body and returning authority to the governor to hire and fire the agency’s director. He and other Democrats objected when Sen. Nick Hacker, R-Grand Forks, amended his bill completely last week—a practice known as “hog housing”—and fought adoption of the amendment on the Senate floor Tuesday.» —“Changed WSI bill passes in Senate” by Janell Cole In-Forum (Fargo, North Dakota) Jan. 31, 2007.
