hog-housing
 attrib.— «Others criticized a practice called “hog-housing,” which is used to resurrect bills that have been killed or to introduce legislation after the filing deadline. “The hog-house leads to too many tricks and games in committee, on the floor, and as we’ve seen in these last days, in conference committee.”» —“Freshman Lawmakers” in Rapid City, South Dakota Associated Press Mar. 18, 2001.
