Davis: ‘A difficult session in some of worst economic times in memory’

Senate Majority Leader Bart Davis, speaking on the floor of the Senate tonight before it adjourned for the evening, reacted to Senate Democrats' press conference earlier today calling this year's legislative session the “worst in memory.” Davis said, “Rather than the worst session in memory, I describe it as a difficult session among some of the worst economic times in memory. Rather than asserting that ideology was put ahead of the state's best interest, I believe that a conflict or struggle of values and principles occurred, just as it has since statehood.”

Davis complimented all members of the Senate, of both parties, for struggling with tough issues this legislative session. “Individually, none are perfectly satisfied - we never are,” he said. “That is politics. That is the legislative process.” He specifically complimented the minority party “for their dignified part in the process.” His comments drew a standing ovation from both parties.
