Gotta break a few eggs to make an omelet?

March 20, 2012 

Senate leaders had fun Tuesday with Gov. Sean Parnell's comparison of senators to clucking hens and the Senate's oil tax plan to a hollow egg.

Parnell, in a letter to Senate Finance Committee co-chair Bert Stedman, said a number of senators are proud of the work that's been done on the plan, SB192. But he said that, "like a group of hens in the barnyard clucking together over a new egg that has taken more than a year to lay, the egg is shiny on the outside and empty on the inside."

Stedman's been critical of Parnell's tax-cut plan.

Stedman called Parnell's letter "entertaining." Senate President Gary Stevens said senators are working on the egg, which he says will be "beautiful."
