OLYMPIA—Rep. Brian Blake in the 2014 Session, hopes to make the Ostrea Lurida the official oyster of Washington.
“This bill that won’t be heard in my committee, but that I am particularly proud to sponsor it because a group of students asked me to do so,” Blake said in a news release.
The Ostrea Lurida is native to Western Washington, and, as one of the first local exports, is important to the history of the state.
“Not to mention the fact that it is also delicious,” Blake said.
The bill is scheduled for public hearing and executive session in the House Committee on Government Operations and Elections at 1:30 p.m. on Jan. 29.
