Otter: Times Is Hard

He told lawmakers, “As you all know, our means are not what they were when we last met here a year ago. … We are better off than many states. However, we as leaders must be sensitive to the fact that far too many Idahoan are out of work or under-employed. … No doubt about it - times are tough. But they have been tough in the past, and we have weathered the storm by working together with a common purpose”/Betsy Russell, Eye On Boise. More here. Idaho Statesman’s coverage here.
