Apple pie the state pie?

Honeyford bill in Olympia would make it happen

— State Senator Jim Honeyford of Sunnyside has introduced a bill in Olympia that would make apple pie Washington’s official state pie.

“I have a constituent up north in my district who suggested it, and I just did it for a little fun,” Honeyford said.

Honeyford is sure this won’t be a partisan issue, but he’s on his own so far. He checked Wednesday, and nobody had signed on as a co-sponsor.

If the bill goes anywhere, Honeyford said it will likely go the Senate Local Government Committee first.

Washington is the leading producer of apples among the states.
