hoghouse procedure
 attrib.— «At the urging of WSI, and led by Sen. Nick Hacker, R-Grand Forks, all the Republicans in the Senate, except Sen. Nething, butchered SB 2257. They stripped the bill of its meaningful reform measures using what is called a “hoghouse” procedure.» —“‘Hoghouse’ of WSI legislation turned it into fraud and farce” by Joel C. Heitkamp In-Forum (Fargo, North Dakota) Feb. 6, 2007. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
