Gov. Butch Otter told lawmakers, "I know that you share my administration's goals of promoting responsible government, enhancing economic opportunity, and empowering Idahoans. I know that you are as devoted as I am to advancing those goals decisively - with certainty - but also with compassion." Then he added, "And speaking of compassion, I also think it's worth noting that the more quickly you do the people's business the more of their money you save." Lawmakers, who clearly got the hint - it cost more than $35,000 for each day the Legislature remains in session - strongly applauded.
