Senate President Pro-Tem Brent Hill and House Speaker Lawerence Denney are supposed to be sharing their "game plan for the 2012 legislative session," but Hill said, "Actually we have 105 game plans, folks." That's the number of legislators between both houses. "Everyone running their own plays. And then we got a bunch of you folks out there calling in plays from the sideline," he said to laughter. "And yet it works amazingly well, it works amazingly well."

Hill said, "I think we've seen the bottom of additional cuts, and we'll start climbing out now as the economy improves, but it's going to be slow."

He said, "We're going to make some tweaks to the education reforms that we did last year, and those tweaks come from suggestions from parents and teachers. I think they'll make the reforms even better, and they'll make them easier to implement."
