House Minority Leader Richard DeBolt of Chehalis and Rep. Matt Shea, R-Spokane Valley, talk just before the 2012 legislative session begins.

OLYMPIA -- The 2012 legislative session starts at noon, with a bit  of pomp and circumstance.

Legislators also have committee hearings in the afternoon, and Gov. Chris Gregoire's state of the state address tomorrow.

It's a short, 60-day session and a big budget problem, so there's not a lot of time for lollygagging.
