House adjourns for the year

The gavel fell, and the House adjourned for the year at 2:21 p.m. “This has been a very difficult session,” said House Speaker Lawerence Denney. “I do apologize for the little scarf incident yesterday. I take responsibility for that. I don't want to make any excuses, but hopefully it was a learning experience for all of us, and I hope it will never happen again.”

“I think perception is very important,” Denney said. “We have to be very careful about what we say and what we do and how it is perceived.”

After calling for the vote to adjourn, Denney said, “The ayes have it, the House stands adjourned sine die.” Members rose to applaud, and their 2011 session ended.
