pacific_chorus_frog.jpgThanks to a group of third-graders, Washington State now has an official amphibian — the Pacific chorus frog. Gov. Chris Gregoire, wearing a toy frog on her forefinger, signed the bill Monday, bantering with the students from Olympia who brought the legislation forward as a class project.

“There, you got a bill passed, and that’s a really, really big deal,” the governor said. “You made a law today.” The students researched amphibians that inhabit Washington, and in a move Kermit would love, they chose the Pacific chorus frog — one that is found in all 39 counties in the state.
