Otter Awards An A To 2011 Solons

Idaho Gov. Butch Otter today declared this year’s legislative session “a very successful one,” saying, “It was a successful legislative session for myself and my administration.” He said if he had to give the session a grade, “I’d give ‘em an A, I feel comfortable with that. And that’s not a social advancement either.” The GOP governor said his proudest achievement of the session was balancing the state budget without raising taxes; he also cited major school reform legislation, and defended his signing of emergency-clause bills for each of the school reform bills, which he did quietly this week/Betsy Russell, Eye On Boise.

Question: Hucks Nation overwhelmingly gave the 2011 Legislature a grade of F and 76% of a current Lewiston Tribune poll gives the Legislature a D or an F. Why the disconnect with Gov. Butch Otter?
