Gov. Butch Otter was greeted with a standing ovation as he entered the House chamber, shaking hands with lawmakers as he went. House Speaker Lawerence Denney told Otter, "The House and the Senate have both agreed that this will be a very short session." Responded Otter, "Sounds promising already."

Beginning his sixth State of the State message since first being elected governor in 2006, Otter told lawmakers, "It is my pleasure to report that Idaho, having been tested by the Great Recession, now is emerging leaner, stronger, more resilient and better prepared to compete, prosper and prevail in the years to come."
