At a time of great displeasure with our state legislature, one senator wants to devote the government's time & energy to establishing an official state steak.
Now, who doesn't enjoy a grilled T-bone, Filet Mignon, or even a Sirloin? But the panhandle cowboy wants the Ribeye to be elevated above all other cuts and given state government assistance to affirm it's value and desirability.
Is there an official state swimsuit? A designated state horse? How about a declared state fishing rod?
Where does this end? Should it even have begun? Now there is some value in having emblems like our flags, seal, and maybe an anthem. so we get that.
Murdock is a strong proponent of rancher & farm issues. He also gets a lot of campaign cash from entities who benefit from his votes and lawmaking. We encourage Murdock to find some worthy causes to advocate for. Those of us who like strip steaks don't particularly enjoy being told that we have bad taste.
